SALUDA–City officials welcomed a new business — the Back Alley Barn “Saluda’s Tavern” — on Saturday with a ribbon cutting. Major Tangie Morgan and Saluda Business Association President Marc Blazar wished owners Josh and Taylor Holmes the best of luck while friends, family and patrons looked on. 

This is the second business venture for the Holmes who also own Ward’s Grill at 24 East Main Street. The tavern is located behind the grill. While the business is new, the barn was built in 1913. The Holmes have renovated the bar and added a large, shady deck. Saluda’s Tavern will offer beer, wine, mixed drinks, bar fare, live music and TV screens with sports channels.

The Holmes, combined, have more than 30 years of experience in restaurants and re-opened Ward’s Grill in May 2022. Saluda’s Tavern will be open Thursday and Friday 4 p.m. to midnight, Saturday from noon to midnight, and Sunday from noon to 10 p.m.
