A popular waterfront restaurant space near the Annapolis harbor that closed last fall is up for lease again.
The former British-themed Crown & Anchor Pub, a 10,500-square-foot eatery located at 12 Dock St. near the City Dock, closed its doors on Oct. 30 after a brief run because of permitting woes with the local government.
The space is now up for leasing again, say officials of KLNB Retail, who this week were named brokers.
The two-story bar and restaurant has first-floor bar space and a second-floor restaurant with enough seating to accommodate 175 diners.
The restaurant site was once Phillips Seafood House and later became Hell Point Seafood. It is located next door to what is planned to be the Sailing Hall of Fame.
“The availability of a fully functional, turn-key restaurant opportunity within the City of Annapolis is extremely rare, and this building is ideally suited for both experienced and first-time food-service operators,” said Brad Berzins, of KLNB.
“The Annapolis waterfront area is surrounded by high-income households and recognized as a popular entertainment destination point for fine dining and socialization throughout the year,” he added.
“The presence of numerous long-term and highly successful bars and restaurants on Dock Street significantly adds to the attractiveness of the site.”
Nearly 55,000 residents live within a three-mile radius of the location.t
