The city has given the go-ahead for a new restaurant liquor license Series 12 for Living Room Wine Café & Lounge, a restaurant located at 9788 W. Northern Ave Suite #1750.
The city must make a recommendation to the Arizona State Liquor Board regarding the approval of applications to sell alcoholic beverages in the city and the board has final approval, according to Arizona law. The standard for the city’s recommendation is whether the best interest of the community will be served by the issuance of a license and whether the public convenience is served.
A Series 12 restaurant license is non-transferable and allows for the restaurant to sell and serve all types of spirituous liquor solely for consumption on the premises. The license requires that at least 40% of the restaurant’s gross revenue comes from the sale of food. Failure to meet the 40% food requirement may result in revocation of the license.
A public hearing notice was posted for at least 20 days, and no comments were received during the posting period. The license application was reviewed according to state law and all departments gave approvals.
