SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A vacant downtown Springfield building, the site for a nightclub up until four years ago, is now slated to become the home for a new restaurant.
Springfield businessman Paul Krupke has agreed to purchase the International Biergarten building at 1600 Main Street from the New England Farm Workers Council.
Krupke reportedly paid $700,000 for the nearly 100-year-old landmark. Up until four years ago, 1600 Main Street was home to the now defunct Asylum nightclub. Before that, the Massachusetts Unemployment Office occupied the premises.
