The wine and beer festival, which will include crafts, art and micro-brewed beer, will be held in Northside Park in Ocean City at the request of the Northside Business Alliance.
The board granted the request of owner Justin Schaub for a seven-day beer, wine and liquor license for Peaky’s Rooftop.
The new business will be located in the 137th Street Fenwick Inn in the former site of Jordan’s Rooftop.
The restaurant section will have 166 seats and the bar will have 81 seats. The new Peaky’s will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The board also approved Schaub’s request for entertainment of up to five pieces and karaoke.
Schaub said his family bought the Peaky’s restaurant in Princess Anne six years ago.
First Street Bistro
The board granted the request for a seven-day beer and wine license for First Street Bistro.
The 40-seat eatery will offer breakfast and lunch, mostly for patrons of the Sleep Inn Hotel at 11 N. Baltimore Ave. in Ocean City.
The board granted the request of owner Scott Heise to have video games and redemption machines, such as claw machines, on the second floor of his West Ocean City business.
Heise said he wanted a family entertainment center and was hoping to have children’s birthday parties there. He asked for 25 games.
“The whole upstairs would be predominantly games,” he told the board.
The board voted to permit Heise to have 12 games, pending approval by the Fire Marshal’s Office.
