NOLA Brewery secured an initial approval from the city Wednesday (5/4) to add a live music venue to the building housing its newly built tap room, next to its current brewery.
Entrepreneur and NOLA Brewery owner Kirk Coco had the support of theIrish Channel Neighborhood Association, in addition to the city planning staff.
Coco is working with the neighborhood group on a good neighbor agreement. The planning staff recommended 17 conditions to the approval that are standard for these types of permits. Things like noise, litter and security were included, all of which the group is planning to address in the good neighbor agreement.
The Tap Room at 3001 Tchoupitoulas Street already features over 20 beers on tap and food by Mcclure’s BBQ.
Coco told Uptown Messenger that they already have 12 live music events planned for later this year.
The Commission voted 5-0 in favor of the permit, which now goes to City Council for final approval.
