Not sure how this works now about getting a liquor license in the City but years ago there was a finite number of licenses given out and unless you bought one from someone who had a license you were SOL.  Now buying the license did not mean that you were automatically approved you still had to go through that process.  All those little corner bars like when you would see all four corners of an intersection with 4 bars were a result of people getting a license and they had to stay open until they decided to sell it.

I don't think  it's that hard. I know someone who has opened 3 restaurants in the city in the last couple of years without any major problem.

It cannot be predicted when they will get their liquor license and they cannot open without it.

Now I’ve never worked in Restaurant/Bar/Liquor industry, but how can it be true that you truly have no idea when a liquor license will be granted?  How are restaurants and bars supposed to build/renovate and then advertise an opening with zero idea when a liquor license is coming?

One possible reason for the delay is that the Alderwoman for the 17th Ward hasn't been exactly on top of things that she needs to sign off on when it comes to businesses in her ward.  Don't know if that is the hold up on the liquor license or not, but it has been a problem for multiple other things in that ward.

Dragging your feet on projects that will bring jobs/people/money to your ward… seems superrrrr smart but unfortunately I’m not surprised. 
 

edit: not a shot at that particular Alderwoman, I dont even know who she is. More a statement about people in the city not knowing a good thing if it came up and bit them in the face.

I assume there may be an "expedited review fee."
