Elon University will reopen an off-campus pub in September that it had purchased earlier this year, reports the Burlington Times-News. The Lighthouse had been a longtime local gathering place until it was closed in 2007 following the arrest of the previous owner. Elon purchased the venue in January of this year.
When it reopens, the Lighthouse will no longer be open to the general public but will cater exclusively to Elon students and staff and their guests. It will be open Wednesday through Saturday night during the school year and offer a program of live and recorded music as well as karaoke. It will serve beer and wine to those over 21 and will have some foodservice. Aramark, which operates Elon’s campus dining services, will manage the venue.
