A new taphouse is in the works for downtown Victoria's Harris Green neighbourhood.
Refuge Tap Room, slated for 832 Fort Street in a retail space formerly occupied by Terrior Tea Merchants, is currently going through the municipal permitting process while upgrades to its interior get underway.
The drinking establishment is seeking approvals to expand seating capacity from 24 patrons to 66, and extend operating hours from 11AM to midnight daily, with a 1AM closing on Fridays.
Pending approvals, Refuge Tap Room is expected to open by mid-2019.
The beer parlour is the latest in a series of pubs to emerge on the downtown brewery and liquor scene.
The Drake Beer Parlour's management, in partnership with New Westminster's Steel & Oak Brewing Company, are working towards a 135-seat brewpub along the 500-block of Herald Street. Vancouver Islanad Brewery, meanwhile, is seeking municipal approvals to open a 40-seat tasting room at its Government Street brewery. And last year Phillips Brewing & Malting Company opened a tasting room on Government Street at Discovery Street.
Although heavily delayed, one of the owner's behind the Yates Street Taphouse is still pursuing a brewpub and restaurant at the foot of Hudson Walk II, a 15-storey residential tower situated kitty-corner from the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. C
