Scotty's Cork & Pint Wine and Tap Room opened in the European Village last week for a soft opening.
The Wine & Tap room will be serving wine by the glass or bottle and beer on tap. It will have live music a few nights of the week and weekly specials.
Owner Scott Champion, who moved to Palm Coast from Miami, is striving for a be achy feel to the bar. Hours of operation will be seven days a week from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.
A grand opening is planned for around Easter.
Champion said he has hopes to continue to revive the European Village with live music on a regular basis on the center courtyard stage and by eventually launching an art and wine walk.
