Old Mulehouse owners George and Pano Koulouris want to keep many of the unique features of the building, like the silhouette of a staircase on one wall seen above. 

      “It’s going to be like a gastropub,” said The Old Mulehouse co-owner George Koulouris as he gave this reporter a brief tour of the prominent Main Street building that’s been vacant for over a decade. 

     “It’s funny,” he said laughing. “I actually can’t stand the name gastropub - it sounds like you’re going to be sick at the bar - but we’re going to have elevated pub food and Georgia wines and beer. We want to be a place Jasper can really be proud of.”
