Upscale Lounge and Restaurant... in a Former Church!

The only thing I love more than finding fun new places is people who have a passion for creating them. I was really happy to hear that Bethlehem's City Council finally gave the green light to the upscale lounge and restaurant (yet to be named) that will occupy the former First United Church of Christ (15-19 W. Fourth St.). The fact that one of the co-owners has been a part of some other great places (Blue, Melt) is encouraging - hopefully with that kind of experience, it will be a great success, an asset to the neighborhood and a fun place for us to check out soon. :)

I noticed that there are a few projects in Bethlehem that are on hold, negotiating leases or purchases, and/or still finding financing. Despite the economic changes, entrepreneurs are still interested in opening in Bethlehem; we should all make a point to support our local businesses!
