Another downtown Olympia eatery wants in on the alleyway dining scene.
Olympia City Council on Tuesday will consider a four-year lease with 4th Ave Tavern for outdoor seating in the adjacent alley, similar to what King Solomon’s Reef is doing next door.
Under the proposed right-of-way lease, 4th Ave Tavern would pay $1,560 for the first year to use a portion of the alley between it and the Reef nearest Fourth Avenue East.
Rent would increase 4 percent a year after that.
This spring, the city signed a lease with the Reef for $1,612 for the first year and increasing 4 percent a year after that.
