Well, it's kind of already here. "Olivia's View" sits atop of Society Silver Spring. It's open for business, but only serving drinks at this time - craft cocktails, wine, etc. They hope to be serving food in a week or so but the menu is not finalized just yet. Looks like they will be featuring American fare - small bites - quite different from Society's menu. The bar/lounge are appears to be a good size - standing, it might be able to hold approximately 100 or so.
They are encouraging guests to come by, check it out, and have a drink or a few. If anyone swings by, please report back!
