South Elm and McGee streets, at the corner known as Hamburger Square, has a new bar and grille. Grey and Charlie Davis welcomed a nice crowd Friday night at Grey's Tavern, 343 South Elm St.
A combination of Old Greensborough charm and reasonable prices provides a friendly atmosphere for young and old. Several large TV screens are attached to walls of brick, plaster, paint and old wallpaper from years past. The beautiful old tin ceiling painted an almost copper-colored chocolate brown and the ceiling fans that spin over the bar help give the place a welcoming, comfortable feeling.
Grey's people-friendly personality gave the place extra charm as he and his wife Stephanie mingled with customers, friends and staff to bring excellent service and atmosphere to opening night.
The beautiful mahogany bar and back wall were custom-built by Charlie. A stained-glass arch built from an original frame found in the old building with glass replaced by South Elm Street's Ellenburg and Shaffer Glass Art Studio accents the area behind the horseshoe-shaped bar.
Good service, good food, friendly staff and Old Greensborough charm make Grey's Tavern the new place-to-be in Downtown Greensboro, NC.
