New Provincetown Businesses For 2019!

We are so thrilled to welcome some amazing new businesses to town this year! The everchanging landscape of Provincetown is one of the things that makes the community unique and wonderful. Each time one visits, it seems that there is something new to experience! This year expect some new places to eat, shop, and even a new brewery! Here are some of the new businesses you can look for on your next Ptown vacation!

Provincetown Brewing Company is coming to 141 Bradford Street (They plan to be open by July)!

From their website: “Provincetown Brewing Co. (PBC) launched Fall 2018, but our tap room and brews will officially roll out in Summer 2019. PBC, founded on the progressive ideals that make Provincetown great, is passionate about brewing quality craft beer. PBC will evoke a sense of community by reclaiming shared, revolutionary, American values, anchored on the iconic geography of Provincetown.”

170 Commercial Street is turning into a brand new coffee shop named “joe.”

The new owners are creating a coffee shop “with a twist.” This includes nonalcoholic happy hour, “grab and joe” sandwiches, and more! We are so excited to see what becomes of the new joe!

The Club is coming to replace Pied Bar

A supper-type jazz club is coming (hopefully by Mid-June) to Provincetown opened by actress/comedian Lea Delaria. You can read more about it on Ptownie.com for all the details! We can’t wait for this amazing addition to town!

Highland Lighthouse in North Truro

Visit Highland Lighthouse in North Truro—the tallest and oldest lighthouse on Cape Cod— before it undergoes a $1.2 million renovation by the National Park Services this fall. George Washington commissioned and established the original 45-foot-tall wooden lighthouse on the cliff of North Truro back in 1797, and in 1831 a brick lighthouse was built nearby, replacing the original. The present 1875 brick lighthouse is 66-foot-tall and was moved from eroding cliffs to keep it from falling into the Atlantic Ocean in 1996. When that happened, the ventilation was blocked to make the move easier. This fall it will close and ventilation will be reestablished; masonry will be repaired; a breathable coating will be applied to the exterior; windows will be replaced; corroded elements will be repaired or replaced; and safety improvements will be made.
