O’Connor’s Bar, a nearly-80-year-old outpost on Fifth Avenue between Bergen and Dean streets in Park Slope, has plans underway to expand to at least three times its current size, according to the Here’s Park Slope blog. When Mike Maher bought the bar three years ago from the O’Connor family, it was in need of major repairs, with leaky ceilings, heating problems and electrical issues. But those problems were fixed and current plans call for the addition of a back room with additional seating, a stage for musical performances, a new kitchen and a second floor with an outdoor beer garden. “We’re modernizing the room, but a priority is to keep the old look,” Maher said. “We’ll be saving the bar and the booths and as much of the room as we can, but the seats will be replaced, because they’re falling apart.” The menu will include burgers, fish and chips and Shepherd’s Pie. Construction is expected to be completed by the summer. [Here’s Park Slope]
