BARRE, Vt. — A father and son are planning to bring a nightclub to downtown Barre, Vermont.

The Times Argus reports Scott Mears is planning to open a nightclub in a portion of the downtown building that had housed Aubuchon Hardware. Mears plans to include a 500-square-foot dance floor, bar, lounge area and small kitchen in the club.

Mears has partnered with his 23-year-old son, Connor, for the venture. The 57-year-old says he was inspired to bring a night club to Barre to help add some nightlife options for the area.

Mears has already received a permit and a liquor license for the proposed establishment. He now has to obtain approval from the Development Review Board. Mears says construction will begin after the board issues a permit.
