WILKES-BARRE - Ron Kamionka believes in the future of downtown Wilkes-Barre and his latest venue will feature a bit o' the Irish.
Mulligan's Irish Pub will open Friday - New Year's Eve - at 41 S. Main St. in the Midtown Village, the former site of Luna Cafe.
Mulligan's will be the fourth South Main Street venue for Kamionka, a 47-year-old Mountain Top native and president of Downtown After Dark and Kamionka Entertainment Group. He also owns the Hardware Bar Entertainment Complex, which includes Bourbon Street, Hardware Bar and the Reflex Night Club.
Kamionka said Mulligan's will open with a limited menu, expanding to a full dinner menu in time for St. Patrick's Day.
When the venue opens, Kamionka said there will be 15 full- and part-time employees. He said when the expansion is complete and the new kitchen opens, another 10 people will be hired. Kamionka said at his four downtown businesses, more than 100 people are employed.
Kamionka said he's impressed with the city's resurgent downtown, saying it has all the right elements for success.
"The city government is investing in infrastructure," Kamionka said. "The downtown really has some synergy, and I welcome more competitors. That would create a stronger base and a more vibrant area."
Kamionka said with two colleges, the F.M. Kirby Center, Movies 14 Wilkes-Barre and several restaurants, the foot traffic downtown has increased and people are spending more time in the city.
"It's becoming a popular destination," he said. "And people are staying downtown for three or four hours."
Kamionka said he expects customers of all legal ages to frequent Mulligan's.
"That's the beauty of Irish pubs," he said.
Kamionka owns restaurant/bar/nightclub businesses in Harrisburg, York, Scranton, Manayunk and Mechanicsburg.
