Conditional Use

East Liberty Tap House Bar – Conditional Use  

Petition Number: PLNPCM2020-00558

Zoning District: : CB – Community Business

City Council District: Five (5) – Darin Mano

Caroline & Josh Stewart, the property owners, are requesting Conditional Use approval for a bar establishment at 850 E 900 S.  The space is currently occupied by the East Liberty Tap House and the bar establishment will retain the same name and ownership. A Bar is allowed as a Conditional Use in the CB – Community Business zoning district subject to certain size limitations.  The applicant is proposing to change the license of the existing establishment from a Tavern/Restaurant to a Bar in order to conform to changes with alcohol related businesses that were previously adopted by the City and State.  A 371 square foot area that previously functioned as a private dining room will be incorporated into the bar’s space for patrons.  The building’s exterior, parking and other aspects of the existing operation are not being modified through this request.

Project Location

Approximately 850 E 900 S.
