Church Hill and Shockoe regulars are likely pooling their money and thinking of taking out another mortgage as news that Poe’s Pub is officially on the market. The bar sits on the edge of Shockoe Bottom at the foot of Libby Hill. The weekends are backed with regulars that come for the solid food, drinks, and live music. The pub has been in operation since 1994.
(Michael) Britt has put his Poe’s Pub up for sale for $1.2 million.
He said he’s not closing the longtime bar and restaurant at 2706 E. Main St. and that he’s just listed it speculatively. The deal includes the business and the real estate.
“My options are open at this point,” Britt said. “Whether I want to sell the whole property, or sell the business, I’m just trying to figure out what to do.”
