The Board of Selectmen has paved the way for Regatta Pub to open a second location at the former Hungry Betty's space at Village Plaza in Marblehead. 

At their meeting at Abbot Hall Wednesday night, board members unanimously approved separate motions to award a common victualler's license and an all-alcoholic beverage license to Rockett Management Inc., the company that owns The Salem Waterfront Hotel and Regatta Pub in Salem.

Appearing before the board were Marblehead resident and Regatta Pub owner Richard Rockett, his attorney, Thomas K. Egan, and William Carroll, who will be running both The Regatta Pub in downtown Salem and the new location at 165 Pleasant St.

Egan told board members that Rockett Management purchased the all-alcoholic beverage license previously belonging to Hungry Betty's owner Jason Rakauskas, at public auction after Rakauskas filed for bankruptcy. 

"This is as fully occupied as we've ever been at (Village Plaza) and a key aspect of that is having a restaurant there on the second floor," Egan said. "Not only is it good for my clients but obviously it is a magnet for people to come to this town and spend money."  

When it opens, Regatta Pub will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. The seating capacity is 170. 

We will be sure to let you know when Regatta Pub is getting ready to open!
