Anyone else been to Bag Pipes yet? We popped in Monday night for the Grand Opening, drank a gallon of free beer and staggered home. I'm not getting impression that its going to be the college bar that Sullys was, so if they keep up a minimum level of customer service the corner won't be the kiss of death that it was to Sully's and Red Fish.
And make no mistake, I don't buy the "OH MY, we get no support" BS, downtown is a very competitive spot for a bar or restaurant. Take your eyes off the target or lose your focus for a minute and your business is toast. Downtown customers are the most open minded, demanding and new experience oriented customers there are.
How will Bag Pipes do? They have a good selection of beer, but that said I'll still walk past them to get to The Lackman, Neon's and Nicholson's. But I can see myself popping in for the odd beer with friends if thats where they're heading.
They had a cover band playing all night interspersed with bagpipes. I'm keeping an eye on the schedule for that Irish punk band I saw a few years ago on Fountain Square, I'll be there for that one.
I still look back with fond memories living in the Groton above Bag Pipes and in the Gramercy, both managed by Towne Properties.
I've said it a zillion times and I'll say it again, those guys get it, costumer centric because what else matters when you're renting apartments? they never lost the plot.
A big part of that were these two helping making life downtown just a little better.
