Uncovering a Liquor License Loophole for Bar/Resto Owners

New, 7 comments

Buried inside the Villager's recap of last week's historic Nightlife Town Hall is a heady little knowledge nugget that liquor license applicants should heed. When applying, always make sure you put the license in the name of a corporation. Why, you ask? A liquor license that was issued to a corporation for a location can be transferred without a hearing to someone who buys the corporation. That means John Q. License Holder can buy and sell the corporate entity without ever changing the name on the paper, saving a trip to the community board to grovel for their love. Or you can put your own name on the license and spend a good chunk of your life listening to how your business will destroy the world. The choice is yours.
