Before being home to Hand + Foot, 69 West Market Street was a plastics outlet, a much-loved Irish bar, and even a chocolate factory—but our favorite predecessor was Carmen’s. We weren’t alive to experience it, but Carmen’s looks like our kind of joint. Just grimy enough to leave you wondering which is the more dubious promise: the pizza or the entertainment. A very special “thank you” to the Corning-Painted Post Historical Society and Sheri Golder. This picture leaves us feeling nostalgic for a couple of our favorite bars: Lou’s Lounge in Orlando and Biddy’s Pub in New York.
