PHOTO: Court Tavern Sign Comes Down

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – The Court Tavern hasn't changed much over the years, but it sure is changing quick now.

Last Thursday, a worker was spotted taking down the bar's signage.

As owner Mike Barrood prepares to re-open the historic rock club and dive bar, he and his workers are spending more and more time fixing up the establishment.

As we reported on July 9, Barrood purchased the liquor license from the former Marita's Cantina and intends to keep the Court Tavern name.


Charlie is a community organizer, a Rutgers journalism graduate, and a 2018 independent candidate for Mayor of New Brunswick.
