Bart and Urby's has been in business since 2005. We were ready 1 year prior, but there were no street lights and RC Movies 14 was not yet opened. Once those were in order, we finally opened on 10/31 of 2005. It was amazing to see all of the support from family and friends, as well as the Downtown revitalization. When we first bought the property, it was a ghost town. Now, after 10 years and lots of hard work, we are still standing.
With Wilkes University turning what was once Bartikowsky's into a gateway to Wilkes, as well as many new restaurants, we firmly believe that Downtown Wilkes Barre is getting better and will continue to do so, especially with the purchase of 5 buildings on our block that are being renovated for lofts. We couldn't be happier!
We do catering at a reasonable price for all functions. All of our food is made fresh, and we are available for weddings, birthdays, and funeral luncheons.
We also opened The Other Side connected to Bart and Urby's in 2013. It is a Venue, gameroom, and private party area. We look forward to all the future artists, performers, and events. We now do plays, comedy, and private parties.
