Station 7 In West Ocean City Successful At Liquor Board Hearing Today

After one complaint about music being too loud in the West Ocean City location the Liquor Board took away their license to play music until 1:00 AM in the beginning of the summer. 

Today a group of almost 30 people showed up in support, (I was also present) of Station 7 getting their license back and the Board unanimously agreed.

Not one person showed up to complain and many neighbors living directly next to Station 7 testified in support of allowing them to play on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 1:00 AM. 

If you've never been to this location, it's incredible. Hopefully the pictures above show just how great a job these guys did remodeling an old bar that had a 50+ year reputation of hosting a really bad crowd. All that has changed and now there's a really great restaurant/bar in West Ocean City Families go to dine and enjoy.

Buyer beware. Don't buy a house anywhere near a commercially zoned building or property because you never know what could be put there. It's that simple. To complain later only proves one thing-the person doing the complaining wasn't thorough when choosing where to buy a home.

anonymous 3:58, First of all, that building has been a bar, (as I mentioned) for 50+ years. Some board members said it may have been a bar back in the 1940's.

I also mentioned that there was only ONE complaint.

I also mentioned the volume of people who lived right next to this establishment who supported music until 1:00 AM on said evenings.

Joe, the building was a nightclub up until about 1945. Not sure when it was built. Then the Villani family bought it and it was a furniture store until the early 50's when they moved the furniture story to Rt 50. Then it became the office and a store for the cottages. It remained a store at least into the
70's because I remember as a child we would ride our bikes there for sodas. It's a neat old building.
