Springtime in Hillcrest: A no-smoking Fountain Bar in the works

Come mid-March, The Hillcrest Fountain bar will have a larger back deck featuring an enclosed area and seating atop the enclosed area, owner Daniel Bryant says. Now the deck drinkers will have “an even better view of the shoppers at Kroger,” Bryant told the Times, laughing.

The bigger news is that the front of the bar — where the pool and shuffleboard tables are and where local and regional beers (and wine) are served from its long bar — will be SMOKE-FREE. Those who’ve been scared off the Fountain, at 2809 Kavanaugh Blvd., next door to Canon Grill, because of its thick tobacco smoke haze will now be able to go further than the front door. The back deck will be where folks can light up, both in the enclosed area and on top of it.
