Seems that bars never really close, they just change locations add paint and new signs, same people.

...but for 7th Haven specifically.

The last location was the 3rd in a decade.

The most recent location has had an alcohol license which means it's very likely the next business there will have something to do with alcohol.

Owners of pubs are like everyone else, the negatives fade with a little time so with nothing but fond memories it's very likely they'll be attracted to try a new idea, in a new way, in a new location but more than likely with all the same players.

Questions:

What makes a good pub?
  • Owners with a good idea and the ability to implement it.
  • Great managers implementing owners ideas via wait staff.
  • Wait staff and all the variables they bring to the equation.
  • Good location.
  • Good patron base.
So if you have a great pub downtown and change nothing but the owner, managers, wait staff, does anything change?

I noticed Taco Heads was gone, but 7th Haven is still updating the clever sayings on their sign each week, so I assumed they were still there... Guess not?

As the article that David linked to states, 7th Haven is shutting down for good.

I think pubs / clubs have to evolve or they wither and die, the entire process of attracting then maintaining customers makes them a limited venture, the one exception are places that have a solid restaurant base to rely on.

There's a greek food place called "The Vine" that opens today, next door to where 7th Haven was.

I've only lived here 11 years and I talk like an old-timer - "It's in the same building as The Shamrock yoostabe".

7th Haven, incidentally, has re-opened as The Gold Standard. Along with being a dive bar, they're trying to get food trucks to stop there. I haven't seen any trucks there at night, not sure if they are having any success getting food trucks during the day.

I thought I read that it was going to be a food truck park of sorts with the indoor eating and drinks.

That's what they said. At night it's a dive bar; I haven't seen it during the day. They originally sought permission to park up to nine food trucks there and the city rejected it. I think under existing ordinance, they can have up to four trucks there at a time. I went there when they had their soft opening (on a Sunday night) and they had four trucks there. I haven't seen food trucks there since.

Food truck parks need plug-in power so that customers don't hear, smell, and feel the heat of the running engines...I wasn't impressed with that park behind Target because of all the running engines. Has it's appeal waned?

Unless it is quirky Austin Texas or you think riding a bicycle to/from work in 100 degree heat is no big deal, I would say it is getting close to yes.
