Dark Horse Saloon will soon be closing its doors for a remodel, and will open back up as Main Street Oyster House.
On Wednesday, Dark Horse announced on its Facebook page that it will close on Sept. 23 for renovations and construction, and then will reopen Oct. 12 as The Main Street Oyster House.
“We are all very excited to be going in this direction,” Dark Horse wrote on Facebook. “On behalf of our owners, management and staff we would like to thank all of you for 4 great years. We hope you make the transition with us and we see a lot of familiar faces!”
The Dark Horse location along Main Street in Bel Air has a history of changing businesses. Before Dark Horse opened up, the building was home to a Greene Turtle and before that it was Ropewalk.
Dark Horse owner Chris Reda spoke before the Harford County Liquor Control Board on Wednesday, and discussed some of his plans for the restaurant. Reda said he plans to change the restaurants hours, but is still "working the logistics out."
Reda also said they are revamping the menu, and will remodel to offer higher-end dining.
The saloon also recently announced on Facebook that it is hiring several positions. Dark Horse is looking for: servers, bar backs, food runners, hostesses, dishwashers, line cooks, oyster shuckers, bartenders and management. Anyone interested in applying is asked to contact the restaurant or stop by.
