Tremont's Spotted Owl Given Permission to Take Wing

At last night's economic development meeting at Tremont West, Will Hollingsworth received 100-percent approval to go ahead with his plans to build out Spotted Owl. At last week's block club meeting, the project received 96-percent approval, thus clearing the way for the bar's liquor license transfer.

"Now that I've got the neighborhood's blessing, I'm really excited to get this thing built and have a cocktail party," Hollingsworth said.

For the past two and a half years, Hollingsworth has tended bar at Lolita, where he has been dreaming of designing the "perfect neighborhood bar." Located on the lower-level of the Tremont Place Lofts at W. 7th and Jefferson, formerly the Union Gospel Press building, the Spotted Owl will accommodate approximately 100 guests, more including a patio.

With the lion's share of work yet to come, Hollingsworth hopes to have the bar open before the end of the year.

"It's the best I can do, honestly," he adds regarding the ETA.
