Dean showed us around the building, pointing out the locations of the bar, kitchen and dining-room seating, along with second-floor space that can be utilized for private dining and special events. Mudlick Tap House’s downtown Dayton location initially will occupy the first two floors of the three-story building, each floor containing about 4,500 square feet and an occupancy of about 100, Dean said.
Plans call for a restaurant that will stay open later than most. It will offer a broad menu, all dishes made from scratch, ranging from sandwiches to entrees. The tap house will have about a dozen beer taps, all devoted to craft beers, and will serve cocktails and wine as well.
