That’s Beaver Street, not Saint Tap. I haven’t been in here; it seems far too busy to suit me. Sports televisions, live music, games … sounds like a family reunion without the family. Since I like my family, that would make me sad.
ANYWHO, it’s Thursday, and that means it’s time for Thursday Doors, which is a link-up masterminded by the masterly mind of Norm Frampton, photog extraordinaire. Go to his blog, look (and comment on) his wonderful doors, click on the blue frog link, and find — or add — doors from your town or travels.
The Beaver Street Tap Room is the baby of Nathan Blank, of Point Blank, which is just down the street. Point Blank is a restaurant and a brewery. I’ve done a Thursday Doors of it before. The Beaver Street Tap Room doesn’t have a web site, but only a Facebook page, which I hate. There are actually a lot of people who aren’t on Facebook, you know. But I found a nice information page on them here, with a great photo of their bar.
So here’s the Tap Room in context. Point Blank is just along there, just before Cellar on the Square, a beer-and-wine-making-supply shop, also Nathan’s.
Here’s a shot of the bar through the closed door. The bar comes from Jim Porter’s Good Time Emporium in Louisville, Kentucky. The back bar comes from there, too, but it came to Jim Porter’s from the Seelbach, also in Louisville, so that’s pretty cool. Also a selfie.
Here’s a picture of the seating, with some of the wall that’s left exposed to show the original brick, the swinging doors to the back, and a reflection of the First State Capitol Building. Kewl.
