New Gallery, New Bar, New Look.

Have you been to Joey's BBQ lately? Things are changing, and we like it. No, the food is still the same great grub it has always been. According to Susie, the best Chili ever and I really enjoyed my fresh made sausage. What is different is the front room which is now a bar with umpteen beers on tap!

I know it's been a bar for some time now, but they've made other changes in the past weeks. They being, brothers Oscar and Raymond Perdomo of the family owned and operated Joey's BBQ.

The floor and walls are all painted, some of the wall fixtures were removed to clear way for bare walls to hang art on, and the lighting has be come more ambient.
Outside, they have removed the awnings, giving the facade a more streamline feel.
Back inside, the
walls will now be displaying art and Joey's will now be part of the art walk, Yay. Speaking of art walk, have you noticed Joey's new Neighbor? Selkouth Fine Art is the newest member of the Arts Colony.

They had a soft opening last month and plan to have an even bigger on this time. With over 23 local and OC artists currently showing, this new gallery promises to be an exciting addition to the growing art walk. Now if we could just get someone to fill the empty next to Selkouth, we would have a dinamite block.

Joey's bbq bar interior has needed some improvement I'm glad they did it, they should put in some of those bar tables and bar stools at those tables to add more "bar space as well. it's kind of empty a bit. I hope and I'm sure it will, downtown becomes a pretty hopping spot.

Hi Andrew,
There are booths in the bar area, we just didn't get them in the photos. They have been stained black and fit the decor nicely. Oscar and Raymond are really excited about this project and have been working really hard to create a nice cozy atmosphere. They plan on putting up velvets drapes and maybe red ambient lighting...just takes time and money.

First the Glass House Bar and now this!? Excellent! I'll have to step up my drinking to ensure that all these interesting new places stay in business.
