Distillery Tavern Opens Its Doors On Old Main Street
The new old bar, live music at a couple locations, football and a 1980s blast from the past.
The pub made its much-anticipated move to downtown just in time for last week’s first Get Down Downtown of the 2011-12 season. Check out The Distillery and other events around Bradenton this weekend.
