Enhancing the neighborhood

There has been a lot of talk about the impact of businesses like mine in the city. And people like to talk trash a lot saying businesses like mine have a negative impact in the neighborhood. It is nice to hear sometimes about how my business has enhanced the community and value of homes in South City.

So my folks are looking for a house closer to the Royale and this is what my mother randomly found on Craigslist:

* * Rehabbed home walking distance from The Royale & Tower Grove Park!

****Updated Side Note 6/3*****

For points of clarification after many repeated questions and misconceptions- once a liquor license is petitioned, the guidelines and signatures are obtained, two mailings are made to the neighbors, NSO, Alderman and Police Captians are notified and it is approved after a public hearing the license cannot be transferred under any circumstances. If you buy an exisiting bar you must go through the entire licensing process for a new license as if you were obtaining a new license at a location that does not have a bar/restaurant that serves liquor. You cannot inherit a license. Even a 5% ownership change requires a new license application.

To pull a liquor license the standards are much lower- and hearings can be brought up at any time with a much lower bar than it takes to obtain a license.

Your business has a very positive impact on the city, no doubt about it. We need more business owners like you and more establishments like The Royale.

As a resident nearby (and friends with residents right behind you), I can say that we need more like the Royale.
