The Barn Expands Patio to Welcome more Customers

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- This time last year many local businesses were shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As businesses have opened up and with guidelines and regulations still in effect, The Barn continues to serve the public safely.

The Barn owner Jim Watson said it was a challenging time last year but the community has been supportive since the beginning.

“I’m really appreciative of the community for being on our side as a locally owned business as well as trying to support other locally owned businesses… I think seeing those folks come in and seeing their enjoyment of experience when they’re here is probably the most enjoyable part,” Watson said.

With a limited capacity and socially distance mandates, The Barn extended its outdoor dining area to welcome in more customers. In addition, The Barn has several music shows lined up for this summer. 

“We have some expanded patio area out there so people can enjoy the outside now that we’re getting to where we have nice days and things like that, so we’re excited about that and we’re also going to continue to have local music,” Watson said
