Plans for Herndon’s first beer garden are beginning to materialize, a sign of the brewing revitalization of the town’s downtown area.
The town’s Historic District Review Board is set to review a plan to demolish a two-story commercial building at 771 Center Street, the future home of the Herndon Biergarten. The meeting is set for Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Owner Matt Rafougaran had hoped to open the business sometime this year. He was not immediately available for comment on why the project was stalled and when the new concept is expected to open.
The building was previously home to Herndon Ornamental Iron Works.
The beer garden will include a full-size garage door. Two seating areas are planned on the first floor.
Customers will be able to see through an open kitchen area. Wood paneling interlocked with vines will lead up to stairs, which are made of wood and metal.
Barn doors will open to the rooftop bar area and greenhouse room. The first dining area is described as a rooftop bar with a green vinyl-wrapped banquette. A second dining area with standard bar tables and stools is also planned.
The project is in its early stages. Only a pre-application has been filed for review.
