location, 368 High Street, is a historic one. Comuntzis
Confectionary was opened here by George Comuntzis and his
family in 1911, and was billed the "place where Dad took
his girl" for more than half a century.
Gibbies Pub & Eatery opened it's doors in August of 198
after a summer of refurbishment that transformed the former
confectionary and diner into a warm and inviting restaurant
and local meeting place that it is today. Morgantown nostalgia
fill this Historic Pub and Eatery.
Some may recall the bustling Confectionary and its connection
with Metropolitan Theatre, located across the street. The
Theatre was built in the 1930's and run by the Comuntzis
family in conjunction with the confectionary. Its stage
hosted celebrities like Helen Hayes, Mickey Rooney, Bob
Hope and Harry Houdini.
If you listed to the "local lore" you might hear faint
rumors of a tunnel beneath the street that connect this
building and the Met affording esteemed guests and performers
access to a "speak easy" that existed here during the prohibition
era. More recently, this landmark has been "The Dining
Room", a diner that was a local favorite for many years
and briefly Zach Morgan's in the mid 80s.
