The original location of Positively Front Street at 44 Front Street was completely destroyed by arson back in December 23, 2000. There was another fire several years before that did some damage to that same building. Inside, there was a scale model train on a ledge that ran above the dining area. The historic build, built in 1907, had an interesting past. It was formerly the Palace Hotel, then it was a brothel, and then a wax museum, prior to being restaurant.
The business reopened in mid-July 2003 at a new location at 516 Front Street (the former location of Front Street Pub) with an updated decor, but closed a few years later.
