What a Difference a Makeover Makes

By Rachel Shuster

Located at 413 Park Ave in Worcester, Mahoney’s has had a serious makeover. Owner John Bartosiewicz has revamped the bar and turned it into a community focused Worcester hotspot.

Twenty-four year-old Bartosiewicz is a busy guy with a knack for giving back. “I’m a paralegal by day, on the finance committee for Millbury and volunteer at Sherry’s House. When I bought Mahoney’s in February, I wanted to take something ‘just ok’ and make it gold,” he says.

There’s beer pong on Tuesdays, Wednesdays are for the two Worcester dart teams which Bartosiewicz sponsors, Thursdays offer up homemade Jello shots and live music from Rob Benton, who has toured with Daughtry, and more live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays.

Mahoney’s also has specialty drinks like their take on the scorpion bowl ~ the Mahoney bowl, weekly beer and shot specials, and 8 beers on tap!

Mahoney’s offers sandwiches from Bushel and Peck in Worcester, which Bartosiewicz’s uncle owns, for around $4.

Bartosiewicz isn’t looking to rob people. He lets people rent Mahoney’s for parties, after work socials, etc. for FREE He also provides sandwiches and Jello shots for these parties for FREE. Oh and there’s never a cover…ever!

Hardwood floors, a TV to play Playstation 3, lottery and Keno complete Mahoney’s face-lift.

“I want to bring life back to Park Ave. I want to bring in a versatile crowd. I want to make a name for myself, and for Mahoney’s,” Bartosiewicz adds.

Mahoney’s is open Mon-Wed 7pm-close, Thurs-Fri 2pm-close, Saturday 11am-close and Sunday 1pm-close. Contact John Bartosiewicz at 508-277-1073 for more info.
