I have some promising news to report regarding the future of The Ghost Soldier…
It turns out that the bar’s owners have plans to shut down during the month of December in order to make several exciting improvements to the space, including building an upstairs patio above the existing one, expanding the current menu and introducing a cigar menu, and inviting bands to come and perform. Oh yes, and a new name is currently in the works!
In the meantime, for all of you who are still missing Murff’s, you can find Louie serving up drinks at The Ghost Soldier’s back bar. “Cheers!”
UPDATE 1/12: Not quite sure what’s going on here. The original plan was to redesign this bar during the holiday break, but something tells me that the owners may not have gotten city approval for their plans. I’ve kept an eye on the place and nothing appears to be happening. If anyone has any news they’d like to share, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, I’ll continue my own search for information and let you know what I find out.
UPDATE 1/23: On Dec. 7, architect Corey Alger of Alger Design Studio received approval from the Courthouse Square Preservation Commission to construct a second floor patio above and an enclosed patio with garage door below for the Ghost Soldier.
