CB12 rejected the proposal after hearing the owners had presented a plan to the economic development committee in early February, which stated that the restaurant was slated to entertain 120 to 200 people with live music and DJs and remain open from 5 p.m. To 4 a.m. On weekends and 5 p.m. To 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday.
