Blend 111, a new restaurant and wine bar, wants to offer acoustic music to its diners in the Town of Vienna.
The town’s Planning Commission ok’d the restaurant’s application for a live music permit during its meeting last night (Wednesday).
The restaurant is set to open today (Thursday) at 111 Church Street NW, Suite 101.
The locally-owned restaurant will feature food and wine from Spain, France and Venezuela, a “micro-cafe” and cold-pressed juices.
“Our intent is to offer acoustic, that small type of performances,” Michael Biddick from Blend 111 told the commission. “We’re not a lounge. We’re not a bar. We’re not a disco. We are not a dance party scene in the middle of Church Street.”
Biddick said that while the restaurant wants flexible to try out live music during different types of the day, Blend 111 will most likely experiment with having two musicians per month.
Blend 111, which applied to have live music between 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday, plans to have one or two musicians play acoustic instruments inside the restaurant, according to the application.
While Bey Lounge was recently stripped of its live entertainment permit, the Town of Vienna isn’t losing its musical performances at local eateries.
The upcoming Bear Branch Tavern (133 E. Maple Avenue) also wants to entertain patrons with live music.
Blend 111’s application is set to go before the Board of Zoning Appeals on Sept. 18.
