LIC beer hall delays opening to March

Owners of a new beer hall and restaurant in Long Island City called Bierocracy are now hoping to open in March after delays because of structural issues with the building.

Construction is currently underway for the 4,000-square-foot establishment, which will have 200 seats, including a 28-seat bar. The eatery will serve Central European food and a select mix of European beers.

The owners plan on making the beer hall a city chain, and decided on the 12-23 Jackson Ave. spot for their first location because of Long Island City’s status as a hot new neighborhood.

“The reason why we got into Long Island City is because it is an up-and-coming area and, quite frankly, it’s lacking something like this,” said Tom Rajic, an owner of Bierocracy. “We feel this is the right place.”

Bierocracy hopes to promote a social environment, where patrons will sit and interact with each other around community tables and a bar, without the distractions of televisions, Rajic said.

Currently the group is still searching for a head chef, and interior construction work is still ongoing.

The restaurant’s hours haven’t been fully decided, but lunch will also be served.
