Another reason to walk over the Big Four Bridge: Parlour Pizza officially opens today, Wednesday, April 5 at the foot of the Big Four Bridge, 131 W. Chestnut St. in Jeffersonville.

The craft pizzeria is in the historic Duffy-Hancock House, built in 1836 and on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition to pizza, baked in an 8,000-pound stone oven imported from Italy, Parlour offers a beer garden and an upstairs cocktail lounge.

The menu will offer 10 different New York-style pizzas, a build-your-own option, and monthly special “experimental” pizza creations. There are also several salads and desserts.

The beer garden, which is in the carriage house, will have 30 taps, a bottle selection and serve pizza by the slice. The garden also will have fire pits and cornhole courts.

Parlour is the sister restaurant of the more upscale Portage House, at 117 E Riverside Dr. in Jeffersonville. Parlour will be open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., with later hours planned for the carriage house and cocktail bar.
