Pier One Bar Lease Expires in 2019

The shocking bar brawl at Pier One Bar and Grill has some parents concerned over the safety of their children. The park is a place that attracts entire families, especially on weekends. Under the previous town council, concerns were raised as to why a bar was licensed within a family recreational space.  Back then, former Mayor Darrell Bradley told the media that the establishment is not a bar but rather a restaurant. When we spoke to Mayor Bernard on Wednesday, he told News Five that the bar’s lease expires in early 2019 after which the council will transform the pier into a child-friendly space.

“Pier One they have a lease and that lease to the best of my knowledge expires early 2019. I believe at around April and then we will look at that lease agreement. Certainly we at the City Council do not believe that a bar should be in the immediate area of BTL Park. The lease expires. We will take a hard look at it and see. Clearly we as a council do not believe that a bar should be in the close confines of BTL Park.”

“What should be there? Would it be left open for the public?”


Bernard Wagner

“We will look at all avenues. But certainly we want it to be more child friendly and children friendly.”
