Letter from the President
Tony Pristash, Owner, All Things Framed
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Northampton Area Chamber, I am very excited to announce our 2015 “NACC Business of the Year” Recipient ... The Gin Mill and Grill!
The Gin Mill, located at 1750 Main Street, Northampton is much more than a bar, as evidenced by the growth and success of the Grill’s fantastic food offerings and the entertainment line-up in the rear music hall of the venue. Opened in 2009 by owner George Yaniger in the former Garfield Hotel, George and his wife Shannon have continually built and remodeled... and built some more... and remodeled some more. As the progress continues, the Gin Mill is certainly far cry from its predecessor. As a family-friendly eatery, the extensive menu and comfortable seating is always inviting. Of course, the Gin Mill’s wings still rule the day.
Along with a great staff, a new look and rebuilding their food service with fresh and delicious menu items, George and Shannon always strive to give back to the community. I can personally attest to George’s charitable nature. For one, George provides a nice home for the “SteelerNation of the Lehigh Valley” fan club in the social hall, which in turn supports the Northampton Area Food Bank and other local worthy charities.
As you may know, the term Gin Mill is slang for “a local tavern where friends gather to eat, drink and celebrate their lives.” A more fitting name of George and Shannon’s business would not be possible.
Congratulations to George, Shannon and their great staff, who always make you feel welcome!
