Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The roast beef sandwiches and beer selection that once made Clark’s a mainstay of Downtown Syracuse will soon return.
Nearly three years ago, Clark’s Ale House closed its Jefferson Street location in order to accommodate the Landmark Theatre’s expansion.
But ownership says it hopes to open on the corner of East Washington and South Salina streets – the old home of Wise Guys Comedy Club - by January 2014.
When they initially closed, ownership indicated they hoped to open in a new location.
According to Clark’s spokesperson Andrew Newcomb, trying to find the right place caused the delay.
They say the new menu will include more dishes and patrons will be able to choose from 32 drafts on tap – 10 more than they offered at the old location.
In addition to the expanded space, customers can take advantage of the parking garage across East Washington Street, while on-street parking becomes free after 6 p.m., plus the city-owned lot across Salina Street.
While the new place will accommodate some changes, Newcomb says they hope to provide the same level of service their customers expect.
"We're staying the same. We're going to keep the feel just the same as it was. Great staff, great environment, it'll be a nice, quiet, clean, pleasurable atmosphere. We try to support our customers just like we did in the past,” he said.
