mellow tiger bar (exterior)

from castle rock posted in television by chewing_the_scenery

This small building in Orange, MA, formerly a clothing store, became the exterior of the Mellow Tiger Bar for Hulu's Stephen King-inspired show set in the fictional town of Castle Rock. The bar's name is an easter egg reference to a bar in King's 1991 novel Needful Things.
