Woody's Bar

The City of Erie is playing a part in delaying the construction of a floating bar down along the bayfront said one local business owner.

Sedney, who owns Rum Runner’s and The Cove, planned to open a floating attraction called Woody’s Backwater BARge and Grill this summer but he said the city wants to see more detailed drawings and plans before it is built.

Sedney said he did not anticipate the city requesting such plans and said the barge will not be built this summer.

In addition to the extra requested plans, Sedney said that troubles obtaining a liquor license have also stalled the progress.
