Hot Springs: From bathhouse to brauhaus

MICROBREWERY: Fox 16 says the Superior Bathhouse could be used by new Hot Springs microbrewery.
  • MICROBREWERY: Fox 16 says the Superior Bathhouse could be used by new Hot Springs microbrewery.

I mentioned yesterday that the National Park Service has a news conference scheduled today in Hot Springs about two leases in historic buildings on Bathhouse Row.

Scuttlebutt is that one lease finally ties up a pre-existing arrangement with the Muses Creative Artistry Project for its cafe and bookstore in the old Hale Bathhouse.

The other lease would be real news if rumors are true: A lease for a brew pub. I'm guessing it would be in the Maurice Bathhouse, scene of today's news conference. Park Service officials had been resistant in years past to uses including alcohol sales.

UPDATE: David Goins of Fox 16 says the microbrewery is planned for the Superior Bathhouse.
