Matt Orton bought the building located at 1013 State Street.
For the last week it's been undergoing a major transformation.
He didn't want to show off the inside yet, but he's planning to be open for one of the biggest events in downtown Erie -- Roar on the Shore.
The bar will be called McCoy's Barrelhouse and Grill.
He's looking forward to his new venture.
Orton expects the remodel to be complete in thirty days if possible.
