Town Council Approves Open Air Restaurant

(This is the original drawing that was submitted to the Planning & Zoning Commission last year for the proposed restaurant at 101 Carolina Beach Ave South. There have been some minor modifications to the final plan that was just approved by the Town Council)

On 8 April 2008, the Carolina Beach Town Council approved this open air restaurant. The restaurant is the newest project being pursued by the owners of the Black Horn Bar & Kitchen. The venue will have live music, outside entertainment and an upscale restaurant with 288 seats. The facility is located on the south end of the boardwalk in front of the Courtyard Marriott.

The Marriott is currently trying to stop construction of the facility as they feel it will possibly create a noise issue with some of their guests. And one can also assume they are concerned because the 50' facility will partially obstruct ocean views from some of their guest rooms. But as Councilman Wilcox stated in the meeting, this is the commercial boardwalk area and the Marriott should have anticipated that the property may be used for entertainment purposes.

So for now we wait to see what becomes of the Marriott's current legal action...
