Visions For Vacancies: Former Downtown Cafe

Periodically, I’ll feature a vacant commercial building or vacant lot for lease or sale and ask you what you think would be the best use for it.

Forget what zone it’s in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon that puts most people to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there?

What would be the best use for the community?

This edition of Visions For Vacancies is the former Downtown Cafe on Main Street.

The popular downtown bar shut down in 2015 and still remains vacant.

Prior to its closure, Downtown Cafe held the title as Bristol’s oldest operating Bar/Cafe. The entire interior has been gutted.

So, what would you like to see there?

Tell me on the Bristol Roundup Facebook page.

Know of a vacant building I should highlight? Let me know!
