FLEETWOOD, PA – Fleetwood has a new bar and grill that reflects the borough’s automotive history.

The Cadillac Pub opened Wednesday at 24 E. Main St. The pub’s name reflects the area’s history: “Keeping the legacy of the original Cadillac factory on the road,” according to its Facebook post. .

General Motors Co. operated the nearby Fleetwood Metal Body Works.

Posts from the bar on social media show photographs of hubcaps and a Cadillac dealer-style clock mounted on the walls.

The pub is the site of the former Klinger’s of Fleetwood, which opened in 2016 and closed in March 2021. Before that it was the Fleetwood Grille in Simmeria and the Simmeria Café and Bistro.

Klinger’s continues to operate restaurants on Avenue Carsonia in the Canton of Lower Alsace and at Reading Regional Airport in the Canton of Bern.

The former Fleetwood Metal Body Works was, according to Autoweek, independently owned, then purchased by Fisher Body Co. and eventually taken over by General Motors. He made bodies for the Cadillac Fleetwood and other cars. GM eventually moved auto body production to Detroit.

The new bar opened at 11 a.m. Wednesday, according to social media. In addition to seating at the bar and tables, it has a fenced patio outside.
