Campbell is one step closer to seeing the doors open once more at the historic Gaslighter Theater.
Regale Winery out of Los Gatos first came onto Patch's radar in December 2012 after a Downtown Campbell Business Association meeting.
The winery was looking at opening a wine bar in the popular downtown. It will have a maximum of 256 people at any given time within the building and will close at 11:00 p.m. (as permitted by the Downtown Campbell Alcohol Policy), with cleanup until midnight.
The project's Conditional Use Permit, which will allow for the new establishment to serve beer and wine as well as live entertainment, was unanimously approved by the Campbell Planning Commission at its Feb. 26 meeting, with commissioner John Razumich abstaining.
The floor plan will include first and second story dining space and a bar as well as a space for retail sales of the winery's bottled wine.
The Campbell Reporter wrote this about the approval.
This is the second wine bar to announce it will be opening in downtown Campbell. The other will tentatively be located in the former Stone Griffin Gallery spot, next to The Olive Bar.
Tessoras Winery recently put up its "Coming Soon" teaser in its windows, with an estimated open date for this summer. The wine shop is leaving The Pruneyard for the downtown.
Regale Winery is the second tenant attached to the Gaslighter in recent years, with the last-Dasha-being ultimately denied.
