Tolliver’s pub of West Asheville will relocate to lower Coxe Avenue as early as March, according to business owner Chuck Brown, who is excited to be a part of the area’s quickly growing bar community.
He expects Dirty Jack’s and The Prospect will make great neighbors, and he thinks the businesses are different enough that they can all thrive. “What we’re trying to do is bring a little food down that side, plus the pub feel,” Brown says. Tolliver’s serves Irish-inspired main dishes along with burgers, sandwiches and standard bar appetizers, although Brown is thinking about adding some Cajun dishes to the menu after the move is complete.
He’s excited about the 5,000-square-foot South Slope space because it has a possibility for a rooftop patio. He also likes the building’s proximity to McCormick Field, and he’s already welcoming the post-ball-game crowds.
