The “One More Tavern” is owned by Amy Davidson, who operated the Library Lounge at 3108 Woodman Drive in the Woodlane Plaza from 2013 until late April 2018, when it closed its doors.

“I’ve always wanted a local place that has a kitchen,” Davidson said in April. One More Tavern’s food service will likely be up and running sometime this fall, she said.
