The sign on the door here at 104 Second Ave. at East Sixth Street announces that the Lion Beerstore will be opening today.
Per their Facebook page, "Lions Beerstore is a beautiful bar, a restaurant, beer consultancy, and retail store under one roof."
A father-son team, who hail from Greece, are behind the operation, and they will reportedly offer more than 300 types of beer in the retail section as well as a food menu offering American and European pub food at the bar.
According to their CB3 application (PDF!), the store hours are 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday; until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The space was previously home to Spice, which closed in June, consolidating its operations with a move to First Avenue between East Fourth Street and East Fifth Street.
Updated 6:59 p.m.
Despite the Opening Tuesday signage, the Lion folks needed one more day to have the place ready for company… EVG contributor Derek Berg says that the store will be open tomorrow…
