"We're looking to open on Dec. 10," said co-owner Justin Dvorkin. "And we're shooting for that Friday [Dec. 14] to have a kick-off celebration."
The restaurant, which is located in Dobbin Center just off of Rouse Parkway, has already hired more than 100 staff members, but are still hiring hostesses and servers. Jaun Valdez, the former executive chef of the District ChopHouse, has been placed in charge of the food.
The restaurant has three total bars, all of which will include 30 taps for the beers they have on draft, according to Dvorkin. He said their most popular beer at their sister location in Baltimore (Pratt Street Ale House) is their own Oliver Breweries beer, which they brew in Baltimore. As a result, the main bar in Ale House Columbia has extra taps (50) so bartenders don't stack up pouring one popular draft beer.
In addition, they'll have three cask conditioned beer taps.
