A family-oriented sports bar, Red Dragon Pub, has opened at 145 E. Main St., New Albany, taking over the space formerly occupied by Café 27 and Liquidz, a combination bar and American café.
The bar area has TVs and a small stage for live music, and the restaurant area serves up European-style bar food such as bangers and mash and golabki, a Polish-style stuffed cabbage.
The clean, minimalist decor is notable for the replica of the Red Baron airplane that hangs over the stage at the back of the pub.
The beer, for now, is all bottles and cans. The owners are looking to promote a neighborhood bar feel, something that is missing, they say, in New Albany, which has become very restaurant-focused. A DJ plays the first Friday of each month.
