H Street NE restaurant Sally’s Middle Name has applied to expand into the second floor of its building at 1320 H Street NE, adding 60 seats to the restaurant.
The application was submitted to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration during its meeting on Wednesday. Residents will have a chance to protest the expansion at a hearing that has not yet been scheduled.
Also on Wednesday, ABRA approved a settlement between Advisory Neighborhood Commission 6C and Sugar Factory, a new candy store and bar in Union Station. According to the terms of the agreement, alcoholic drinks larger than 32 oz. can only be served to groups of two or more. Sugar Factory’s menu includes several cocktails served in 60-ounce goblets.
The agreement also allows Sugar Factory to stay open until midnight Thursday through Saturday and until 10 p.m. during the week. It also bars the sale of alcoholic beverages to-go.
ABRA also approved a settlement between ANC 6B and the 7th and L Street Market at 700 L St. SE. The agreement prevents the corner store from selling individual alcohol containers, including beer or malt liquor in single containers less than 70 ounces and spirits in half-pint or smaller containers.
The ANC also called on the market to be more proactive about discouraging the consumption of alcohol around the store by not providing cups, posting no loitering signs and selling the alcohol in clear plastic bags.
