Did You Know ... UNCW Had a Pub on Campus?

A coffeehouse opened in Hinton James Hall in 1975.  It sold refreshments and featured student entertainers.  Beer was BYOB. It was known as "the coffeehouse" or the "the pub" until the name "Good Wood Tavern" won in a student contest.  The Good Wood Tavern--as in "The wall paneling was made from some good wood!"--closed in 1982 with the opening of the University Union.  More information: Oral history interview with Linda Moore, UNCW first Student Activities Director
