BECKLEY – A Raleigh County bar is rebuilding after a January fire destroyed its interior.
Shooter's Bar and Grill on Second Street in Beckley has begun rebuilding. Carpenters are covering the walls with solution to eliminate the strong smoke-smell, and new drywall and drop-ceiling are being installed.
The bar owner says he still needs to paint and lay new floor. Workers are just a few days into the rehab process but progress is being made.
Carpenter Nathan Tweeddale says his work is almost finished.
“We'll only be a few more days, but then they'll have to paint and lay a new floor.”
He says the plan is to open back up by spring.
“I would guess a month. I know they're ready to open the doors back up.”
Owners say they don't plan to have a grand re-opening. They're just anxious to get the regulars back at the bar.
