But the location is a bit of a surprise. Haas will open a second Birroteca in Bel Air, in a property that was formerly home to Bill Bateman's Raw Bar & Grill.
The venue, which is undergoing a top-to-bottom interior renovation, was in dire shape when he first saw it, Haas said.
"It's exactly the kind of thing I like to take on," he said.
Haas said he expects that people in Bel Air will embrace Birroteca, which he plans to have open in late September or early October.
"I think we're going to hit a good market up there," he said. "And it's far enough away that it won't compete with our business down here."
