Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
I am referring specifically to Nashville, Tennessee. Forgot to specify. Thank you.
Thank you. I could not find any restrictions as to liquor, although the beer restrictions is 100 feet. I have searched the ordinances and statutes for "liquor" and a number of combinations of feet, yards, etc...
I think that the thinking is that if you are serving liquor, you're also going to be serving beer, and the beer law governs distance to public parks.
So I would bet that the requirement is 100 feet, not finding anything in the codes or ordinances that would say otherwise, but I would certainly get the city and county to sign off on this, OR make the sale of the land expressly contingent upon getting such a license to operate.
Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please select the "accept" button. If you have already clicked "accept", or if you will in the future, please let me know so I can track these for my own reports and customer satisfaction stats. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX good luck to you!
