Two Bars to Open on Route 1

Thirsty TurtleThe Diamondback reported yesterday about two bars opening this fall on Route 1 in downtown College Park. The Mark will be a lounge serving tapas with a sophisticated atmosphere, and the Thirsty Turtle is a large bar with a live music venue upstairs.

When we stopped in the Thirsty Turtle today the bar manager said he was hoping finish work would be completed by next Friday, but noted they had a lot to do before opening day.

  1. Finally, five bars in CP. I’m glad to see they are diversifying and trying to draw different crowds.

  2. Hey, it’s an improvement.

    This part sounds awesome:

    But the second floor, owners said, is something College Park has never had: A massive venue capable of housing large-scale nationally promoted bands and musical acts.

    “The closest you can get to something like this is the 9:30 Club,” part-owner Thomas Hall said of the building’s second floor. “Students aren’t going to believe what we have.”
