New Owners Take Over Church Street Tavern 

Side Dishes

Published January 29, 2014 at 9:21 a.m. | Updated December 6, 2016 at 2:37 p.m.

Stephen Parent has spent 16 years working his way through the ranks at Church Street Tavern. Having started as a bartender, Parent was most recently general manager of the downtown Burlington staple. On Monday, he became the owner, along with Scott Michaud. The pair took over from Spencer Noble and David Taft, who had owned the sports bar for 19 years.

Parent and Michaud’s first order of business was starting renovations in search of what Parent calls a “more modern, fresh, new look.” He hopes that the tavern will be back open by February 3, complete with new hood system, an extra flat-screen TV for sports fans and a fresh coat of paint.

As for food, diners can still expect “pub fare at a good, reasonable price,” says Parent. That will include a new emphasis on wings, including Buffalo wings double-fried with sauce to capture the flavor without the mess. They’ll be half off on Thursdays, one of several nights boasting discounted specials.
