The 7 Line Saloon

The 7 Line Saloon

It's no secret that I want to will open a bar one day. I've been talking about it for over a decade now since I was moonlighting as a bartender, just waiting for the right time. I'm ready, I've been ready, the customers are ready, but the land unfortunately isn't. 

I doubt I'd call it The 7 Line Saloon, but I scooped up the twitter handle in 2013 just incase. Has a decent following for having never tweeted. If you've seen how T7LA rolls, I have zero doubt the place would be mobbed no matter what the name is.

No disrespect to McFaddens, Mikkeller (great addition this past season. Can't beat a local craft beer brewed feet from the field), or the Pine, but we need more. Much more. Wrigleyville will never be duplicated, but it would be nice to have some options. 

Visitors that aren't previously in the know are always left confused when they see what surrounds the ballpark. Nothing. That needs to change.

Who knows how much longer the Willets Point redevelopment will take on 126th street. They have started, but your guess is as good as anyones. 

Back in October I did a little research about the shack out on the Flushing Bay pier at the Worlds Fair Marina. It would be perfect to renovate. Tasty drinks, live music on the water, light food menu, and a few minute walk to the ballpark. Zero cons besides being seasonal.  

Ends up it's not for sale, because the pier is actually set to be demolished. The whole area is getting a facelift, and they say the overhaul won't be complete until 2021. So let's be realistic and say 2025.

You can read more about the redevelopment project on the Jackson Heights Post. I've heard the project expects dozens, if not hundreds, of bidders to line up for any retail opportunities. If my wallet allows, I'll give it a shot. If not, the search continues.
