A Richmond ‘Pal’ Now Under New Ownership, and Kicking off with a Bang!


A Richmond mainstay is now under new ownership, and is undergoing a bit of a glow-up.

Pally’s on Water Street has been a popular watering hole for decades, but rest assured, the bar and liquor store will not be going anywhere.

According to one of the new part owners John Perkins, the business will not be changing much, but will be getting a makeover with a party to celebrate this weekend.

Perkins says that Saturday, the 28th there will be what he calls a ‘Re-Launch’ party, to coincide with tailgating at EKU.

Although the event is strictly 21 and up, Perkins adds that there is no purchase necessary to come for the grilling and the live music from 1 to 4pm.

However, if you are unable to make it to this weekend’s event, Pally’s will also be participating in EKU’s homecoming, and he invites all Richmondites, alumni and alike, to come and get their party supplies and hang out at the revamped location on the 4th.
