New pub to open in former Legacy site

The former Legacy Showroom in Cloverdale is gone

The owners of a new pub are planning to open The Henry Public House later this month, once renovations are complete.

The establishment is moving into the old Legacy Showroom at the Clover Inn at 5708 176 Street.

The pub’s owners, Langley-based Joseph Richard Group, already operate several high-end watering holes in the Lower Mainland, including Micky’s Public House in Coquitlam and the Townhall Public House in Langley.

In August, the company began hiring kitchen, front house, management and sales staff for The Henry, is still hiring door staff.

The space was previously home to a strip club that was closed down in January.

One of the owners  at the time, president of Waterstone Investments, said in shutting the club’s doors, he was responding to pressure from the local business community, law enforcement and the City of Surrey.

“It doesn’t fit in anymore,” Knott told The Reporter. “The city has wanted it shut down for a long time.”

Both the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association had been lobbying to shut the club down as a condition of moving the motel’s liquor store.

The Surrey RCMP’s Cloverdale community policing office and the City of Surrey were also instrumental in convincing Knott to pull the plug.

The move represented “a turning point”, Cloverdale Chamber executive director Bill Reid said at the time.

Joseph Richard Group is also planning to open a new liquor store in Clover Crossing Mall at 64 Avenue and 176 Street in Cloverdale.

The Clover Station Liquor Store location was most recently home to a Blockbuster Video.

According to their corporate website, co-owners Andre Joseph Bourque and Ryan Richard Moreno met in elementary school and have been friends ever since.

They worked in the hospitality industry, starting as bartenders and working their way up to opening their first venture in 2002.

They are expanding the group across the Lower Mainland, and are expecting to open another Townhall pub in South Surrey.
