“We’ve never been big enough,” Tieber said. “We’ve had to turn customers away too often.”
The design and construction of the Dublin Pub’s expansion will incorporate and re-use large beams salvaged by James Kent of Architectural Reuse Company from a 108-year-old former church at 842 Superior Ave. in Dayton, Tieber said. Construction is being overseen by Mark Shannon, whose design and historical re-use projects include Jimmie’s Ladder 11 pub and restaurant in Dayton.
The beams will accommodate a vaulted ceiling and allowed for the addition of mezzanine seating, boosting the project’s total cost to $400,000 from the initial estimate of $300,000 to $350,000.
Tieber also said construction of a second large-scale project he is involved in — the Dublin 7 Whiskey Pub & Carvery at the Austin Landing multi-use development in Miami Twp. — is expected to begin this spring, with the new restaurant-pub projected to open this fall.
