New Owners of Chicks Bar & Grill Get License Transfer
iBerkshires.com reports the Selectmen have approved the transfer of an all-alcohol license to the new owners of the former Chicks Bar and Grill.
The new owners of the nearly century-old business went before the full board Wednesday to seek the transfer and update officials on their plans to reopen the pub.
Tammie Shafer, who owns the 128 Columbia St. property with her husband, Trent, plan to rebrand the bar as the Pine Brook Pub and have plans to overhaul the menu.
Former owner Dennis Knapp, operating as Densue Inc., had the bar on the market for some time after running it for nearly 20 years. The tavern has operated since at least the 1930s first as Chick's Cafe and later Chick's Lunch.
Shafer said they have been busy making some renovations and have removed the pool tables and games to make way for more seating.
Shafer plans to open later in the fall and the Selectmen wished her well in the endeavor.
