Cigar lounge planned on Main Street

Posted By on Thu, Dec 29, 2011 at 1:19 PM

CIGAR LOUNGE: Planned for 109 Main.
  • CIGAR BAR: Planned for 109 Main.
Though the application for a conditional use permit is still in the mill, I noticed last night that work is underway on the ground floor of the Wallace Building at 109 Main Street on what appears to be a new bar.

Dana Carney in the city planning office confirms he's reviewing an application from John Michael Peace for a permit for Maduro Cigar Bar and Lounge. It promises, in addition to cigars, cocktails and light food. It won't serve a menu extensive enough to qualify for a restaurant permit, so it is seeking a private club permit from state ABC. All private club applications must go through the conditional use permit under city rules, but Carvey said he saw no obvious obstacles on this application.

This won't be an after-hours joint. Hours are said to be 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday and untiil midnight Friday and Saturday. I believe this is the space occupied for a time by Sims Bar-b-q. The permit should go before the Planning Commission Feb. 2.
