The history of Liz’s Cafe, Anybody’s Bar Provincetown is rooted in well-loved markets and restaurants in Provincetown.
From The YearRounder’s Guide to Provincetown:
Liz is Liz Lovati, of Angel Foods fame, so she knows something about good food.
Liz has a section on her breakfast menu paying tribute to the old Tip For Tops’n restaurant. The Carreiro’s ran “Tips” on this spot from about 1966 to 2013. The odd moniker stood for “Tip of the Cape for Tops in Service.” Tips was well-known for their breakfast specials.
The name Liz’s Cafe, Anybody’s Bar, reaches even farther back into PTown history. Ernest L. Carreiro, an early émigré from the Azores, ran Anybody’s Market at 31 Commercial Street. The market dated back to at least 1942, when this photo was taken:
Ken Fulk embraced Liz’s Cafe, Anybody’s Bar history in his design.
Fulk is a designer of experiences big and small. He is known for layered interiors and over-the-top parties. With a team of 50 “magic makers” to help bring his ideas to life, Fulk leads a team of architects, designers, branding, and event specialists in both San Francisco and New York.
Fulk used historic maritime decor, lighting, and accent pieces to tap into the rich maritime history of Provincetown, Tips for Tops’n, and Anybody’s Market. The central focus is the Dory Bar that appears to be at sea. A large ship’s wheel sits prominently above the bar.
Ken Fulk is a Provincetown resident.
