Clyde’s to Open Music Venue

Clyde’s Restaurant Group and The Howard Hughes Corporation have announced plans to open a live music venue in Downtown Columbia. Overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi, the yet-to-be-named space will be adjacent to Clyde’s of Columbia in the space formerly occupied by The Tomato Palace, which was recently closed to make way for the new venture.

The state-of-the-art venue will showcase local and visiting musicians from around the world. Guests will enjoy the comfort of a superbly engineered 4,600-square-foot listening room. With cutting-edge technology, sound, and lighting, the venue will also serve as a space for private events and meetings.

In late 2011, Clyde’s Restaurant Group opened The Hamilton, its first hybrid music and dining concept located in the vibrant Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, DC. “We were energized by the popularity of The Hamilton,” says Tom Meyer, President of Clyde’s Restaurant Group. “Howard County has a thriving arts and culture community, but a noticeable absence of places to hear music. The Lakefront in Columbia seemed like a perfect spot.”

With the permit process just beginning, more information on the new Clyde’s Restaurant Group project will be provided when available.
