It’s the end of the road for the Dark Horse Tavern in Westport. After their Saturday-night shift this past weekend, employees were informed that landlord Bill Nigro is cleaning house, and that Travis Fields, who has served as general manager at fellow Westport bar Ernie Biggs for the last four years, will reopen a new concept in the space.
The new bar will be called Westport Saloon and will be more live-music-friendly. “The focus will be on bluegrass, alt-country and a little bit of country,” Fields says.
