Charles Village Pub To Be Demolished

Struck by two-alarm fire in January, building couldn't be saved

Charles Village Pub——is set to come down.

West Pennsylvania Avenue will be closed between York Road and Washington Avenue for the Towson bar's demolition, which Councilman David Marks said in an e-mail is expected to take place between 8 p.m. on Friday, March 11 and 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 12.

A longtime student favorite, Charles Village Pub was the site of a grease fire on Jan. 29 that quickly spread out of control. It caused the building to cave in and did damage to an adjacent office building and bank. The pub building, valued in state records at $737,500, could not be saved.

Rick Bielski, the pub's owner,that he planned to rebuild, bolstered somewhat by an outpouring of support from friends and former patrons. A new CVP may be ready by the end of the year.

David Marks is doing a great job informed of what's going on in our community. An open government has happy citizens. Keep wathching out for the small businesses and the community Councilman Marks.
