Our semi-co-workers at the Colorado Springs Business Journal have the good word on a great spot: Tony's Bar is moving across the street and expanding its space. And worry not, dear friends: The brick, wood and Midwestern charm will be moving too. Cheese curds and pints of Leinie's for all.
Teams of workers have already started demolition and construction in the new building, which will nearly double the bar’s footprint with about 4,300 square feet, not including future plans for front and back patios.
There will be room for three pool tables, a bigger bar and a stage for bands and entertainment, where [owner Eel] Anderson said he can reserve space for private parties.
“We’ve already had interest from high school reunions, Colorado College reunions and we can host fantasy football drafts,” Anderson said. “We were too small for that before.”
