A new restaurant/tavern has started in the one-time Fire Station 3 building at 817 W. Colorado Ave.
       Called the N3 Taphouse, the business is owned by Johnny Nolan, who also owns the Navajo Hogan on North Nevada. He had started and run the Southside Johnny's bar in the early 2000s, but closed it last year.
       The two-story enterprise is open daily after 4 p.m., the website states.
       Nearly 100 years old, the firehouse's brick exterior remains, but Nolan gutted its 3,200-square-foot interior during a multi-month renovation to allow seating on both floors, he said in an interview while the work was going on.
       “I just like the Westside,” he said. “Colorado Avenue has a lot of energy and excitement.”
       The website is n3taphouse.com.
