TROY – The iconic Mayflower Theater building in downtown Troy will soon house a live entertainment venue, craft cocktail bar and retail outlet.
Wes Martin, owner of Busted Brick Realty LLC., purchased the building at 9 W. Main St. and will work with Anthony Scott, founder of AM Scott Distillery and former co-owner of Moeller Brew Barn, to make the space to live awaken .
“After spending some time in the beer industry I decided to break new ground and create a spirits collection. The Mayflower offers a unique opportunity to sample our spirits collection with others in a thoughtfully designed building. The refurbished space will include a craft cocktail bar, live entertainment venue for emerging acts and a rooftop bar,” said Scott.
The retail portion of the building will be called Provisions Co., a brand founded in 2019 by Jess Nielsen, chief marketing officer at AM Scott Distillery and former CMO of Moeller Brew Barn. Nielsen has spent her career in interior design, architecture and product development.
“It’s always an honor to work on historic buildings, and the Mayflower Building has a special story to tell,” said Nielson. “I am confident that this new venue and retail location will be unlike anything else in the area and will only add to the vibrancy of downtown Troy.”
“Provisions Co. will offer the AM Scott Distillery line of spirits along with merchandise designed to celebrate Ohio’s rich history of innovation,” said Nielsen.
Martin, a West Milton native and offensive warden for the Washington Commanders, shared his enthusiasm for the building’s future.
“It is important to me to save useful buildings. The Mayflower building is iconic and has big bones. I look forward to working with this talented team to bring the space to life and bring a new experience to the area,” said Martin.
Exterior renovation of the building at 9 W. Main St. is ongoing and is expected to be completed in mid to late 2023. Until the Mayflower renovation is complete, Provisions Co. will open in late 2022 at 214 S. Mulberry St. in Troy.
