Breaking: New Biergarten On CVille Downtown Mallr


IMG_2602“Get ready for a new Biergarten on The CVille Downtown Mall with at least 60 craft beer taps,” said Jerry Miller, who confirmed the breaking news with reliable sources moments ago.

The ownership team behind CommonwealthSKYBAR is opening the biergarten. The biergarten is located directly across from CommonwealthSKYBAR, a couple doors down from Java Java. No expense will be spared with the build-out.

The ownership team is actively trying to drive traffic and interest to The Pavilion side of The Mall. They project this interest to positively impact commonwealthSKYBAR. However, they do not expect the two business models to be competitors.

The new biergarten will replace both Just Curry and commonwealthRESERVE, the event space located across The Mall from commonwealthSKYBAR.
