Last March readers Steve H. and Brian told me that Monty’s Sports Bar, the dive bar at 5114 Hollister Avenue, in the Magnolia Center just east of Goleta (a region affectionately known as Noleta), had permanently closed and that a replacement was coming: NoTown Tavern. Steve H. wants to let you know that NoTown Tavern is now open for business. Their original plan was to partner with Woody’s BBQ to offer food but I don’t know if that is still happening. I have also heard that NoTown Tavern will be making superb cocktails with Goleta Red Distilling Company’s Goodland Gin.
