City councilors approve outdoor seating permit for Bangor club

Written by

BANGOR - Half Acre Nightclub in Downtown Bangor will soon offer outdoor seating, despite initial concerns from nearby residents.

Monday night Bangor city councilors voted unanimously to allow the city to give an outdoor seating permit to Half Acre Inc.

The proposal was unsuccessfully brought before the council earlier this year.

At the time, the proposal was met with residents' concerns about noise and trash.

According to city councilors, the business and residents worked to reach a compromise.

Under the newly approved outdoor seating permit, alcohol service and consumption will be cut off at midnight.

In addition, two Half Acre employees will be stationed outside while the seating area is open.
