Long-time local bartender, Shannon Henne, and his partner, Anthony Pignanelli, have taken over as the new owners of The Corner Pub bar, on N. Andrews Avenue, and had their grand opening on June 10. They have also acquired Island City Pizza next door and plan on opening the establishment in the next week.
Shannon has bartended at the Cubby Hole for over 13 years, and released a statement before the opening. “Although I love Cubby Hole, I had to look towards the future. I love bartending and will continue to do so at the new location. A dream has come true.”
Henne and Pignanelli plan to create a neighborhood atmosphere, which was evident on opening night.
The Corner Pub is located at 1915 N Andrews Avenue in Wilton Manors. Information about daily events is at CornerPubBar.com.
