Seven years ago, the owners of Stubb’s bought NYC's shuttered Cedar Tavern for $150,000. This week, they paid $2.4 million for a spot on South Lamar, near Barton Springs, that will be the bar’s new home. The 50-foot dark wood bar was known in the 1950s as a hangout for creative types like Jack Kerouac and Jackson Pollock, and later as a space for folk musicians like Bob Dylan. The restaurant’s concept, name and chef will be announced within the next month, and Mickey Spencer of East Side Show Room is designing the space.
