The original application was for the Escape Room to sell alcoholic beverages for on -site consumption in connection with (i) a restaurant, and (ii) The Escape Hotel’s “escape rooms”. The site has approximately 10,500 square feet, and the restaurant was authorized to have 113 seats back in 2008, but is now requesting 146 seats. The proposed hours of operation would be until midnight on Sundays through Wednesdays, and to 2 a.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays.
