Inferno Expansion Plans Heat Up

The State College bar scene could be seeing a facelift in the near future.

Dante’s Restaurants Inc., owner and operator of State College staples such as The Deli, Bar Bleu, and Inferno Brick Oven and Bar, plans on expanding Inferno, according to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.

A public notice of application for alcoholic beverages was recently placed in the storefront adjacent to Inferno, formerly The Attic clothing store. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is responsible for regulating the sale of alcohol within the state and requires bars to apply for expansion. The status of the expansion is currently pending with the PLCB.


LCB spokesman Shawn Kelly relayed that the application is currently under investigation by a field analyst — which is standard procedure for the board — and a decision will be made on the expansion in an upcoming board meeting.

A representative from Dante’s declined to comment.
