Photos: The Classic Tavern takes over Local Bar@Highland

After decades as the Arabian Bar, the classic dive at 3360 Navajo Street closed last fall and was given a facelift by Barry Zadikoff, owner of Barry's on Broadway, who opened it as Local Bar@Highland in January. But the concept was short-lived: The space was recently sold to the Little Pub group, which did a few renovations and just reopened it as the Classic Tavern. The new owners hope to provide the LoHi neighborhood with a hangout that has the same dive-bar vibe as the Arabian (the mural on the exterior is a tribute to that spot); while there's no kitchen, the bar plans to serve frozen pizzas in the near future.

Danielle Lirette stopped in to see the new/old watering hole; keep reading for a look at the space.
