The Ryleigh’s restaurant group’s plans for Crossbar were approved on Thursday, February 20th by the Board of Liquor License Commissioners for Baltimore City (BLLC) thus expanding the liquor license from 12-14 E.

Cross St. However, the drawings for the plan, which included several zoning variances, were denied at the Baltimore City Municipal Zoning and Appeals Board (BMZA) yesterday, February 25th. The plan was approved by a 3-2 vote, but a 4-1 decision of approval is needed for projects to move forward.
