JAY — A new bar and grill, and dance hall featuring special event nights will set up in the former Parker Builders building on Intervale Road/Route 140.

Co-owners Christopher Walsh of Canton and his aunt Peggy Walsh of Mexico plan to open the Walsh Family Tree of Jay in mid-December. They are leasing the building from owner Rick Parker of Livermore.

The Walshes will meet with the Board of Selectpersons at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25, at the Town Office for a hearing on a request for a special entertainment permit.

“We wanted to try and get something going in Jay,” Christopher Walsh said. “We wanted to help the community.”

One area will be a dance hall with music. The grill will offer hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and beverages. Beer and wine coolers will also be served.

They also plan to have alcohol-free nights for teens, Walsh said. The alcohol coolers are on wheels and can be rolled into a secure area.


Other special events will be a seniors night, a family night and a veterans night, Peggy Walsh said. They also plan to offer karaoke.

They hope to hold indoor flea markets.

Each event will be posted on the outside sign, she said.

The hours will be 5 to 11 p.m.

“We are shooting to be open seven days a week,” Christopher Walsh said.
