Help Town Hall Open in Glover Park

Hall, a new restaurant to open in Glover Park, needs the ANC 3B to
approve a “Stipulated License� to allow them to serve alcohol until 2
a.m. on weekdays and 3 a.m. on weekends. The city gave them the liquor
license from the restaurant formerly in the space, but they need the
ANC’s blessing to extend the time. They want the later hours to help
their bottom line and are worried they won’t be able to pay the space’s
high rent without the late night sales.

Since the location is
up the street from a pizza place open until 4 a.m. and two strip club
on a busy stretch of Wisconsin Avenue, I hope they get their license!

Below is a message from the owners and the meeting announcement.

To all concerned,

would like to begin by thanking all those who have emailed us, either
offering their support or raising concerns so that we could address
them. This Thursday the ANC will be discussing the issue of TownHall
and our request for standard operating hours. At this Thursday’s
meeting, the ANC will be considering whether or not to give its
blessing to our request to extend these hours to the standard operating
hours (2AM during the week and 3AM on the weekend). Ultimately, our
goal is to provide a warm, friendly dining experience featuring an
exceptional menu, while incorporating a neighborhood bar atmosphere
that all Glover Park residents will feel comfortable frequenting. Our
ability to provide this atmosphere will be severly impacted if we are
forced to kick people out the doors by 11:30 every night. We feel that
there is a large population in Glover Park that doesn’t necessarily
follow a 9-5 schedule and enjoy’s having the option of dining late or
grabbing a cocktail later in the evening. There will be residents
attending that are opposed to our request, and we would hate for their
voices to be the only voices heard, and thus affect the happenings in
Glover Park. In any event, we would like to invite all interested
parties to attend
this Thursday’s meeting, whether you favor our request or would care to
address any concerns of your own. Thank you for your interest in this
concern and we hope to see some friendly faces on Thursday.
