British Pub With Live Music Looking for New Spot in Vienna

A new British pub with live music is no longer eyeing a spot in the building that also houses Amphora Bakery in Vienna.

Tom Kyllo, the applicant for the project, told the town’s Planning Commission at the meeting yesterday (Wednesday) that plans to bring the Hawk & Griffin Pub to 405-409 Maple Avenue W. have been withdrawn.

Kyllo said that issues with signage rules and the site’s subdivision prompted the withdrawal.

“This site is one of those difficult sites in Vienna,” Kyllo said, adding that the subdivision means that there is one site plan for two sites. Since it is a shared site, Kyllo said that the pub would share a dumpster with the other businesses there, but would not have shared parking.

“Because we are on a side street, we can’t have a sign on Lewis Street,” Kyllo said. “And because don’t own the property, we can’t have the sign on Maple [Avenue].”

Kyllo told the Planning Commission that he is looking to bring “the authentic British public house atmosphere” with live acoustic music to another spot in the town.
