We've been wondering for a while now... what's going on in Bayside? Businesses have been opening, new restaurants are opening, and now we're in for a little country infusion.

The Portland Press Herald is reporting today that a new country bar will be opening soon at the site of one of Portland's old municipal public works buildings between Parris street and Hanover street in Bayside, sort of diagonally across from the newly renovated Bayside Bowl on Kennebec street.

According to the PPH, two proprietors from Massachusetts are set to open a new country bar that will feature dancing, a stage for performances, seating for at least 32 inside, a bar that seats 26, and an outdoor patio that can accommodate 40.

And the best part? The name!

It's going to be called "The Whiskey Barrel."

Glad to see more businesses opening up in Bayside!
