Arthur's Korner Pub

Galley Group plans to give new life to an old favorite in Mount Lebanon. The restaurant accelerator company announced the future launch of Arthur's Korner Pub, described in a press release as a "revamped pub concept" meant to "maintain that same charming look and feel that everyone loves of their favorite neighborhood bar" while offering a "slightly elevated take with an expanded cocktail menu and a simple wine list.” The concept, set to open this summer, will move into the space once occupied by The Korner Pub, a popular bar that operated for eight decades before closing in April 2022. Galley Group promises that Arthur's Korner Pub will offer "charming tributes such as locally sourced frozen pizza and freshly popped popcorn, reminiscent of that classic small-town bar feel that made the Korner Pub so well-loved."
