The longtime manager of a popular Albany bar and his wife are paying $193,000 for the Holmes & Watson building in downtown Troy.
They plan to reopen it as Finnbar’s Irish Pub.
Sean Costello, a manager at Cafe Hollywood for 17 years, and Megan Costello, a hair stylist at VSalon in Guilderland, expect to close on the property in early April. The couple lives in Albany.
They are self-funding the purchase along with Costello’s parents, Joe Costello and Jean Costello, of North Greenbush.
They will invest another $40,000 to paint and renovate the pub at 450 Broadway.
