We can expect to find the pub at 719 W Main St, where it will neighbor a host of other local joints, including Brick and Barrel, which is also undergoing developments that we covered here

What Now on Tuesday spoke with McCracken about the forthcoming concept. “[my husband and I] have been in the service industry for a combined 30 years. We understand restaurants, and it’s not just about having a place for us to have our own drinks. We are trying to breathe some life back into historic downtown Leesburg,” she commented. 

The bar is planned to open in either the “last week of June or early July,” depending on when construction is completed.
