A restaurant with a 40-foot bar is proposed for a former West End fish market-restaurant.
LLC, of 958 W. Beech St., has applied for variance with the Long Beach Zoning
Board of Appeals for a 40-foot bar with seats at 954 W. Beech St, according to
the zoning board agenda for Sept. 26. The address is the site of the
former Molly’s, a fish market and restaurant, which also claimed 958 W. Beech as
an additional address at the same building. The zoning board hearing on
Thursday will be held on the sixth floor at Long Beach City Hall, at 1 W.
"They are looking to get a permission to have the bar," city attorney Corey Klein told Patch.
As one Patch reader wrote on the website’s boards about the bar that reportedly has already been built at the former Molly’s, “The bar is clearly longer than the ‘service bar’ that is usually allowed for a new restaurant in [Long Beach].”
