Mayor Wagner Wants Pier One Bar Moved

After the ceremony, Mayor Bernard Wagner fielded questions from the media and one of the topics was the location of Pier One Bar. The infamous establishment received negative reviews after an all-out brawl broke out weeks before someone was shot and killed there. The primary concern is that the bar is located at B.T.L. Park, which is supposed to be a family-oriented public space. Pier One Bar, however, is a business where alcohol is sold, loud music is played and where questionable personalities have been known to socialize at.  According to Mayor Wagner, attorneys have been consulted with respect to the status of the bar at B.T.L. Park; but if left to him, he would have the bar removed and replaced with a child-friendly business.

“We have other means of putting in pressure on the Pier One facility so we are looking at all those areas.”

“What are some of those measures?”

“Well, the trade license is up for review and the liquor license. So we do have areas where we can exert pressure but we await word from out attorney.”

“Ultimately would you like see it removed?”

“I would certainly like to see that facility moved.  My vision for that area is a facility where the kids can go there. It’s a popcorn, pizza, ice cream type facility where the kids can enjoy our water front and blend it better with the park.”
