A new space available to rent for private events could become available downtown.


City Council will vote Nov. 26 on a special-use permit for an event facility on the second floor of the building at 113 E. Eighth St.

In October 2018 council members approved a contract for the sale of the building–the historic post office that served as Georgetown’s City Hall–for $1.5 million to City Post Partnership, which Travis Baird, the city's real estate services manager, described as a group of local business owners.


According to documents for the Nov. 26 council meeting, City Post intends to operate a destination restaurant and bar in the building, including a second-floor event space, which is contained inside of the existing facility.

“In addition to usage of this event space by patrons of the restaurant and the general public, the event space may also be rented out for private events,” the documents said, adding the event space may include live music or entertainment.

The hours of operation will be primarily afternoons and evenings, up to seven days per week, the documents said. Events may run as late as midnight. It said the estimated number of employees and customers utilizing the event space will not exceed 124 people.
