WILKES-BARRE -- A new bar is hoping to attract the college crowd in downtown Wilkes-Barre.

Newswatch 16 found a "coming soon" sign for a bar called "Stir" along South Main Street.

The website for the bar said it's hiring new employees and expects to open sometime this fall.

The bar in Wilkes-Barre has had several names and owners in recent years, most recently Joe K's Brew House.

    This is the LAST thing this area needs. A bar ? Really ??

    They should outlaw alcohol completely and let all these drunks sober up

    Society is sick and twisted and alcohol is the leading cause of the destruction.

    Sober up losers !!!!!!!

    Beatings, stabbings, rapes, murders, and drug dealers only congregate in bars? Drunk drivers are well…? Wow I thought that could/does happen everywhere and people also were able to purchase alcohol somewhere other than a bar. How ignorant I must be. Lets not blame “people” for their actions… it’s much easier to place the fault on businesses that provide JOBS for people in the area and contribute some INCOME to the area. Lets just close down every business we do not agree with, instead of going somewhere else, and live off of the government. World peace here we come!

    GREAT… just what this area of PA needs…. another bar! As if there are not enough bars for beatings, stabbings, rapes, murders, drug deals and drunk drivers to congregate. Enjoy WB!!!
