A BevMo may soon be coming to Midtown. The big-box liquor store has applied to renovate the former home of The Beat on J Street. The building is a historic site so special permits would be involved. The checkerboard pattern beneath some windowsills would likely be removed but the marquee that used to announce band performances would stay. Forty-seven parking spaces would be made available and the application includes a request for occasional on-site alcohol tastings.
