Operators said the venue, owned by Bruce Bartlett of Rancho Santa Fe and operated by General Manager John Lek, includes a 120-seat tavern serving craft beers, a 115-seat restaurant and a 3,417-square-foot meeting space.

A museum with free admission houses Colonial-area documents and memorabilia honoring the nation’s founding fathers.
