The Hill Bar and Grill is still on track for late April or early May opening

WICHITA — Some passersby are wondering about the Hill Bar and Grill at Douglas and Oliver.

“We’ve been at a standstill for, like, a week and a half,” says Brent Steven, who is opening the business with his brother, Brad.

Brent Steven says there was a permitting issue related to a mezzanine they won’t be using. He says it’s something the owners of the building have been working on, and it isn’t an issue for the business.

“We’re not too off track,” he says.

Steven expects plumbing and drywall work to start shortly. He says the Hill still should open by late April or early May.

“Once we get going, it’s going to go real fast.”
