The Barn To Reopen as Tap and Crab Houses

The Carney building’s owner said the business will reopen in about two weeks.

After about four months of renovations, the establishment formerly known as The Barn will be reopening in about two weeks.

The Carney restaurant, located at 9527 Harford Road, will reopen as The Barn Tap House upstairs and The Barn Crab House downstairs.

"We’re looking at it more of a high end sports bar. There will be 24 drafts on tap—microbrews, that type of thing—the menu has been completely redone. Everything has been remodeled in here," said Bob Rush, the landlord and father of the owner Bob Rush II. 

The building, which was built in 1859, has been in the Rush family since 1979. The restaurant has been completely remodeled with everything including the heating system, plumbing and kitchen being replaced.

"There was quite a few challenges with nothing being square or plumb level or anything like that," Bob Rush said.

In July, The Barn closed because of financial mismanagement, a partner in the business said at that time. None of the individuals involved in that version of the restaurant are involved in the current venture.

I think they should have live music twice a month. What's the harm. DJ's are great also, but let's just see what happens. I'll check it out anyway mo matter what they decide.
