FLOW AT THE CCCP
CURRENTLY CLOSED


For me, the fascination with Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania comes from the fact that there was so much more to it then what I expected when I first visited.  Even now, after I have traveled there many times, there still seems to be something new and unexpected.  Whether it is an incredible St. Patrick’s Day celebration, inspirational mansions, a haunted jail, or another bit of local lore told to me by a stranger at a bar, it never ceases to surprise.  Now, we can add another Pennsylvania first to Jim Thorpe’s list.

THE MODERN AND STYLISH BAR AT FLOW




exterior of cccp as seen in American Public House ReviewA little stroll up Broadway, away from the town’s epicenter, sits a great new place called FLOW.  It is a sparkling tavern inside an old stone factory that dates back to the first half of the 19th century.  The name comes from the creek the runs directly underneath the building, and the owners have built a terrific view of it right into the floor. 

As you walk into the room, there is a gorgeous antique oak bar on the far side of the room.  It is well over 100 years old, but fits seamlessly in to its new surroundings at FLOW. The bar holds a very special place in the history of this town, once called Mauch Chunk.  It began life as the bar at the West End Brewery.  After the brewery closed, it bounced around town for many years.  The good folks at Flow painstakingly restored it back to its former glory and re-commissioned it to once again do the good work it was made to do.

FLOW is located in the beautiful, old building which is also headquarters to the CARBON COUNTY CULTURAL PROJECT. The CCCP is an organization dedicated to the nurturance and promotion of the arts, culture, folklore, fine dining, and fellowship in the historic coal region of Pennsylvania.

But if these things are not enough to entice you through the door, then keep in mind that FLOW is also the first bar in the state to combine with an actual art gallery.  It is a concept that now seems long overdue, bringing together great art with the atmosphere of fine food, drink, and conversation.

Around every bend and through every door you will find the best of what the Carbon County Cultural Project has to offer.  You’ll experience a visual smorgasbord and it works in perfect harmony with FLOW.

From a beautiful historic bar, to a flowing creek in the floor, to captivating works of art, FLOW never ceases surprising their guests.  For those who have been to Jim Thorpe, PA that seems to describe the town just as well is it describes this wonderful new tavern.
