- One of Maryville’s most popular nightspots has officially sold, and the new owner of The Palms has major plans in store for the bar sometimes affectionately referred to as the “Buchanan Street Library.”
The Palms Bar & Grill, located at 422 N Buchanan St., sold Tuesday to Erik Schreiber, a former Chicago police officer who sees a bright future for the Maryville tavern that he still cherishes from his college days.
“This is a fantastic spot,” Schreiber said. “This is a landmark spot. Actually, just yesterday I found an old picture of it from before it was the bar when it was a bottling company.”
