BLOOMFIELD — West Prince singer and musician Cory Gallant is now experiencing the bar scene from the other side of the counter.

Hazzard Saloon opened in the Bloomfield Mall with a staff of eight and seating for 65. It offers a full menu, pool and darts, and a 70-inch projection screen.

“I pretty much lived in the bar and entertainment scene all my life,” said Gallant, co-owner of new operation, “and I’ve always had the interest on being on this side of it.”

Gallant said he is encouraged by the interest his new business enterprise is generating.

“I just felt central West Prince needed a place where people could go to unwind,” he said.

While Hazzard Saloon is primarily a country saloon, Gallant said other genres will be performing there from time to time.

There will also be trivia and karaoke nights. The first trivia night will be on April 25 with trivia master Jason Milligan.

The grand opening for Hazzard Saloon is planned for Saturday, May 3, at which time Gallant’s band, Old Doctor Young, will be performing.
