Dave's Downtown Taverna is open for business.
It features a new bar made from 100-year-old recycled pine found in the floor of the renovated building. But it also has a lot of old Dave's favorites like upstairs dining and the spiral staircase.
Owner Dave Miller says he hopes his investment and success will encourage others to come into down town and renovate some of Harrisonburg's older buildings.
The official grand opening will be later this month. He hopes to also renovate the old location and turn it into a vegetarian restaurant called Vegan Dreams.
