Under new owner, Ferneau will still host live music

Posted By on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 4:41 PM

Back in November, the Times reported about local entrepreneur Frank Fletcher's purchase of Ferneau. Fletcher made it pretty clear that there wouldn't be major changes to the restaurant. The restaurant will continue to host live music regularly on Fridays and Saturdays, and plans are in the works to have music on Thursdays as well, said bartender Peter Webre.

Webre said some customers had assumed that the restaurant and bar would be closing earlier under the new owner, but that Ferneau will stay open until 2 a.m. on Friday and 1 a.m. on Saturday "as long as we have people."

Ferneau hosts Richie Johnson tonight and Chris Henry tomorrow night. Webre said he's aiming to have a monthly show from Amasa Hines as well. The music starts at 10 p.m. and there's no cover charge.
