To get a liquor license in Tennessee, is there a restriction

Resolved Question:

To get a liquor license in Tennessee, is there a restriction on how many feet you must be located from from a public park? I know that for a beer license it is 100 feet. This would be a bar and restaurant combination, and I realize there are food to drink rations etc. in this state. i simply need to know if there are distance restrictions. Or would codes determine this, and if so I need to know if they have such a requirement.

RGMacEsq :

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.

RGMacEsq :

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...

RGMacEsq :

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.

RGMacEsq :

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.
