Top of the Hill owner Scott Maitland opened a new banquet hall and a new bar Thursday adjacent to the current location.
The Great Room, the new banquet hall, was created after requests from customers who wanted a place to hold weddings and social events. It holds parties of 20 to 300.
The Back Bar, the new bar that holds up to 225 people, has foosball and pool tables and serves cask-conditioned ales, which are unfiltered beers.
“It’s a throwback to how beer was made 100 years ago,” Maitland said.
Separately, Top of the Hill plans to open a new liquor distillery in late summer in the space previously occupied by The Chapel Hill News. The liquor will be manufactured to distribute statewide.
