Downey Planning Commission unanimously approved plans to expand 20/20 Draft House into an adjacent tenant space.
20/20 Draft House has been in operation since 2013, and lies on the south side of Firestone Boulevard within the Downey Gateway, adjacent to Crossfit Downey.
The Draft House will expand westward into what is currently a vacant space, which was formerly occupied by Net Electronics. Net Electronics closed its doors early this year after over 55 years of business.
The currently 2,013 square-foot space will now acquire an additional 2,304 square feet due to the expansion, for a total size of 4,317 square feet.
The interior of the two spaces will be remodeled to become one space. The façade of both spaces will be redone, and the former entrance for Net Electronics will be used for emergency egress only. The bar, bathrooms, and a portion of the kitchen will also be remodeled, and the current stage for live entertainment will be relocated to the north-west corner of the restaurant.
Planning Commission also decided to allow the Draft House to use the rear entrance during the day.
Current hours of operation and live entertainment will remain the same.
