Esquimalt residents have wondered for years about what commercial options would be going in at the Town Square development.
Now we know a little more although more details will be forthcoming on Dec. 18 when Aragon Properties will offer more information at a news conference at 3:30 p.m. at 505 Park Pl.
A public house will occupy 2,930 sf commercial retail space at the corner of Park Place and Esquimalt Road at Esquimalt Town Square, leased to local operator Demian Merino.
Born and raised in Victoria, Merino has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years. Early in his career, he worked for Freehouse Collective (formerly the Donnelly Group) in Vancouver, who owns and manages over ten pubs and restaurants across the city. Most recently, he was the general manager of the Victoria Pub Company, managing local favorites like Bard & Banker and Irish Times.
The new public house is slated to open in late spring 2024 at 101-505 Park Pl. in Esquimalt.
