Nestled inside the local, uptown pizzeria, Cassano’s, is what some might call a ‘hidden gem.’ If you walk past the counter, you’ll encounter the unexpected—a palatial new pub called the Buckeye Livery. With an outside patio, expansive bar, arcade, pool tables, and live bands scheduled to play throughout the fall season, it’s not one to miss.
“It is a real piece of history,” said Larry Reinsmith, co-owner of Cassano’s and the Buckeye Livery. “As soon as it was up for sale, I knew a pizza place would be perfect here.”
Located only a few blocks west of Wilmington College on the corner of South and Locust streets, The Buckeye Livery offers the classic Cassano’s menu including pizza, calzones, and subs.
“Starting October 3, we will be having an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet,” said Reinsmith.
This historic building was once a horse livery in the 1800s, later converted into multiple venues, including an ice cream parlor, a meeting house, and now a bar, arcade, and Cassano’s pizzeria.
The Buckeye Livery is open on weekends from 10pm to 12 pm, featuring live bands throughout the fall season. In addition, the weekend of October 21 and 22, the Livery will host a “Fall Fest,” featuring music by Section 8, Mr. Speed, America’s Kiss Tribute, and Reeking Havoc. Other bands expected to perform later this fall are Prowler, Blue Steel and Elvis.
“Prowler is coming all the way from Mississippi,” said Reinsmith.
Additional space within the Livery is available for rent for special events. To contact Cassano’s or for more information about the Buckeye Livery, call 937-383-2222.
