Music takes a Village.

Remember to look it up as Charleston Village Tavern.

It's still in Mount Pleasant on Johnnie Dodds Blvd but the new owners have refurbished the "old" Village and have a great new attitude.

Last November they gutted the place, knocked out walls to make it more open and used their band connections to get the music re-started.

You can even have a cold draft beer now.

And the old "bar food" idea was scrapped to make way for Gourmet Burgers and such.

The day I stopped by David Warren was often on his cell doing what a Booking Manager does best...lining up the live entertainment.

John Morlan, the General Manager, toured me around, showing where walls had been pushed back or removed and the sizable sound booth they had created.

"We ran all the connecting wires down along the wall to the stage area and enclosed them with a bar foot rest," said Morlan.

It's been a few years since I stopped in to have a beer and listen to a regional band but I plan to keep tabs on who's coming to the Village.

They were moving the couches down to the area in front of the stage as I was leaving.

Get there early for a comfy seat down front.

(Click twice on the picture to see details. Their plan is to have shows that start early. I like that! Music beginning at 10:30 or 11:00 has you out in traffic in the wee hours of the morning. Tough on a "school night." Thanks for stopping by my blog.)
