TONIGHT: Cork's Cigar Bar throwing reopening bash on Old Main St. in Bradenton

A significant player in the downtown Bradenton nightlife scene just announced a move that has been in the works for months.

"Cork's Cigar Bar will be open at 5 p.m. today!" reads the Facebook message posted by bartender Meagan Miller about two hours ago. "Come on in and see our new beautiful building (across street from old)."

A call to her father, Cork Miller, confirmed the relocation of his family's establishment from 425 Old Main St. to 424 Old Main St.

"The downstairs bar is all ready to go," he said. "But the upstairs won't be open yet."

A grand opening is planned for the near future to coincide with completion of second story lounge.

As for tonight, RJ Howson (guitar/vocals), Devin Neel (drums/vocals) and Gerry Neel (bass) will be hosting an open, blues-based jam starting at 9:30 p.m.

Trivia with Pennijo Beaucamp starts at 7:30pm

I first broke the news about Cork's changing locations in March and reported about it again, among other Old Main St. developments, in June.
