Frazier’s Tavern has opened at 389 Merrimon Ave. in the old location of The Corner Pocket pool hall. I haven’t been yet so I don’t have many details. Looks like a regular beer joint, with pool tables, a patio and ping pong.
Just a quick note about The Corner Pocket – the pool hall was the site of a death in 2007 when an intoxicated man fell in the bar parking lot and was robbed after he was knocked unconscious by the fall.
The old Corner Pocket has no connection to the new Frazier’s, and that incident should in no way reflect poorly on the new business. Just my newsperson’s recollection of an old event.
