News Nugget – Barge to Open for the Season

Susan says…

If you’re like me, that warm weather we had a couple weeks ago made me long for a cold beverage beside a body of water.   Here in Charleston, that body of water has to be the Kanawha River, so I thought of The Barge.  Unfortunately, they were not open.

Rest easy, though, friends- The Barge is set to open for the season this Saturday, May 15.

Hours are:

Monday – Thursday  11:00 am – 10:00 pm
Friday – Saturday  11:00 am – 11:00 pm
Sunday  noon – 8:00 pm

If you go:

The Barge Bar & Grill
1414 MacCorkle Ave SW
Charleston, WV  25303
