Stowe's Rusty Nail, a land-mark watering hole since 1969, is to reopen later this month. The Nail has been shut down for the last 6 months due to loss of business. Since the bar was purchased from it's previous owner, Bobby Roberts of Stowe, it had become less and less local friendly. Turning locals to other favorite watering holes like the Matterhorn and Rimrocks, where they felt more welcome.
Apparently the owner Dan Swierzewski of KSK Properties LLC of Holyoke, MA, has finally gotten the hint. In an attempt to revive the business he has hired Kate Wise, a former bartender, to Manage the new Nail. Kate gets it and will be taking strides to make the Nail local friendly again. We look forward to seeing what the "new, old" Rusty Nail will be offering Stowe Natives.
