No smoking at the R.O.B.
The Royal Oak Brewery is officially smoke-free. Effective November 27th, patrons who choose to light up will have to do so outside.
Owner Drew Ciora explains this decision: "We are going non-smoking in response to our patrons requests. The associated risk of second-hand smoke to our staff and our guests cannot be ignored any longer. Instead of cigarette and cigar odors in our restaurant, you will notice the wonderful aroma of our freshly prepared food and the brewing of our handcrafted ales. Our goal is to provide nothing less than the best experience for our guests and be a leader in our restaurant/brewpub industry."
Previously, smoking was allowed in the "bar" area of the facility and on the patio.
Oh, and Kudos to you for once again donning the festive lights - if you don't know what the Brewery looks like during the holidays, it's worth a spin.
You can dance if you want to at Mr. B's.
With a newly approved dance permit and dance floor, Mr. B's is the only place you can (legally) dance in Royal Oak without a cover charge. Various local DJ's will play the hits every Thursday, Friday & Saturday starting at 9:30. For those of you who opt to be a wallflower, the pool tables, dart boards and other distractions are still available to you.
Bistro liquor license approved at Cafe Muse
Cafe Muse is the first restaurant in Royal Oak to be approved for the Bistro Liquor License. Pending State approval, the Cafe (best known for their fantastic breakfast menu) will serve liquor and beer, and extend their hours to include dinner.
Royal Oak's Bistro license is available for consideration for facilities with a seating capacity under 75, and they cannot remain open past midnight.
