While outdoor dining along King Street has been a blessing for many local restaurants, Village Brauhaus (710 King Street) wasn’t so lucky. But now the restaurant — and former castle — is hoping to take that same principle to the roof.
In an application to the Planning Commission, Village Brauhaus owners Chelsea and William Gross are asking for permission to expand the restaurant dining to the roof.
“With the challenges of COVID and to maximize the safety of outdoor dining we kindly request the addition of 49 occupants to our rooftop,” the owners said in the application. “Seating would be spread out enough to allow for safe dining.”
The application said the rooftop would include a service area and bar.
The owners said that the traffic pattern in front of the restaurant along King Street made outdoor dining there unfeasible.
“Allowing us to utilize unused space that is not directly visible from King Street would allow us not only to compete,” the application said, “but will provide a unique rooftop experience for all guests and tourists to Old Town, Alexandria.”
Village Brauhaus is not the first King Street locale to hope to expand to the rooftop. The owners of 101 N. Union Street filed an application early this year to convert the roof into an outdoor restaurant space. A very early list of potential new Waterfront Museum locations also included the roof of the Torpedo Factory.
