Local Pour House in Bayside is seeking to operate a sidewalk cafe

A newly renovated Bayside bar and restaurant may soon add outdoor dining to the mix.

Local Pour House was given the green light by Community Board 11 on a permit for a sidewalk cafe. The permit will be presented to the appropriate city agencies, including the Department of Consumer Affairs, for final approval.

Located at 213-11 41st Ave., the bar went through an extensive renovation in 2017 that saw a kitchen and additional seating added to the business. The watering hole now serves a number of unique bar bites and dinners alongside its wide selection of tap beers and mixed drinks.

With the permit, restaurant owners plan to establish non-permanent railings to enclose an outdoor space for four small tables with four seats each, according to board Public Safety, Relations and Licensing Committee chair Jack Fried. The area will only be accessible from inside the eatery and will operate during the warmer months. It will be closed down at 10 p.m. each night.

Board members at the June 11 meeting raised concerns with the amount of space the cafe would take up on the sidewalk, which is heavily trafficked.

Fried said that ample space would still be available, as the sidewalk is approximately 13.5 feet wide and the cafe would take up less than half that space.

“From the drawings that we saw, the remaining space is quite adequate,” board chair Christine Haider added.
