Two more riverfront district liquor licenses OK'd
Updated on: 03.05.14

The Nashville Redevelopment Commission granted two more letters of support for riverfront district liquor licenses Tuesday.

Muddy Boots Cafe and the Pine Room Tavern can now seek three-way licenses from the state, which allow the serving of beer, wine and liquor.

The Pine Room already had a two-way license allowing the serving of beer and wine, but Muddy Boots had none. Depending on the stipulations that came with the Pine Room's two-way license, the owner now might be able to sell it to another restaurant.

A third riverfront license application, from Pizza King, was tabled until the April meeting. It was missing some information, including permission from the property owner to seek the license.

If Pizza King manager Ryan Seward gathers the missing information and gets a letter of support from the Nashville commission, he still might run into problems with the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.

State law restricts businesses in a riverfront district that are within 200 feet of a church or school property from getting a liquor license. Pizza King is next door to St. Matthew's Anglican Church in Salt Creek Plaza. Because Pizza King was there before the church, Seward might have some leeway, Nashville Redevelopment Commission adviser Ed Curtin said. But the local commission does not have the final say.

The redevelopment commission has now allocated four of its five riverfront district licenses, provided that the town council and then the state OKs them.

The first two were Big Woods Brewing Co. to expand Big Woods Village downtown, and Michelle Kritzer to turn the former Casa del Sol building on the east end of town into an American grill restaurant.

If more restauranteurs express interest, the town council could decide to allow more riverfront licenses.
