Nestled on E. Locust Street between Elm and Monroe Streets near Butler Catholic (St. Paul's) School, Vero's Bar was a staple on the east side of Butler for over 50 years. Fred Vero, not the one that was Mayor in the late 1970's, but his grandfather, received one of the first liquor licenses in Butler County after prohibition was repealed in 1933. A section of the front of their home was enclosed, and a local bar was born. This establishment spanned three generations of Veros. Fred's two sons, Sam (and wife Sis) and Leonard (Hank) operated it for many years, the Sam's son Fred (also not the mayor from the late 1970's) ran it until it closed in the late 1980's.
