Republic gets city approval to bring live music to Seven Corners
Owner Matty O'Reilly was all smiles last night as he basked in the news that his new restaurant, Republic on Seven Corners, has gotten approval from the city to start hosting live music in one of the restaurant's recently remodeled rooms.
The new venue has a separate entrance, though O'Reilly anticipates that most shows will be all ages and free, giving patrons the opportunity to wander between the music room and the rest of the bar. Despite being attached to Republic, however, he says he's looking forward to developing it as its own entity. O'Reilly says the new space will be called Aux 1 (or possibly Aux One, he hadn't decided on the spelling yet), a charmingly geeky reference to the auxiliary inputs on stereo systems and other audio equipment.
