Set to open 4 p.m. on Monday, Talleyrand Tavern will bring a casual bar experience to 211 W. High St. The 900-square-foot bar is owned by Dave and Sue Brockway, the owners of next-door neighbor The Governors’ Pub.
“Basically you can come in, have some drinks, converse with your friends and have a good time,” said Joe Bann, the tavern’s manager. “It’s going to be a casual, neighborhood bar.”
The tavern will offer the usual amenities with a few twists. There will be eight beers on draft and a selection of 30 bottles, Bann said. The beers are all brewed in Pennsylvania.
A selection of appetizers will be available, including pretzel bites, onion rings and dips.
Bann said the team started the planning process about a year ago. The space, which is connected to The Governors’ Pub, was originally used as banquet space.
Talleyrand Tavern’s hours are 4 p.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday, with happy hour running from 4 to 6 p.m. during the regular work week. On Fridays and Saturdays, Bann said the tavern will be 4 p.m. to midnight or later depending on business that night. Bann said the tavern may stay open until 2 a.m.
At the new neighborhood bar, there will be a little more leniency with last call on weekends.
After a year of planning, Bann expressed he’s excited to open.
“It’s going to feel great,” he said. “Especially after a year of planning of which direction to go, the design as far as what we wanted to do… Right now, everything is a go.”
