Will Nets Fans Need Drinks? Community Board Meeting on Ratner Liquor License Application

Should Bruce Ratner and Mikhail Prokhorov's Barclays Center Mall Restaurant Bar Arena be granted a liquor license? With the product they're putting on the court they and their customers are gonna need a few drinks something awful.

Anyway, if you're interested in why they think 18,000 (minus everyone under the age of 21 without fake IDs) should be able to belly up to the bar at once and chug down some of the best swill around and how they'll handle it, AND ask questions....you're in luck.

Norman Oder reports:

Coming April 10: Presentation on liquor license application for the Barclays Center
Atlantic Yards Report


Community Board 6 announces a joint meeting with Community Boards 2 & 6 at 6:30 pm on April 10:

Public Safety/Environmental Protection/Permits/Licenses
Presentation and review of an on-premises liquor license application submitted to the State Liquor Authority on behalf of Levy Premium Foodservice, LP and Brooklyn Events Center, LLC at the Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue (between Flatbush/5th Avenues).

78th Police Precinct
65 6th Avenue, Courtroom
(between Bergen/Dean Streets)
Brooklyn, NY 11217

CB 6 District Manager Craig Hammerman notes that the joint review session is being held because the arena and site spans multiple Community Districts. Community Boards don't see the liquor license applications, but get a standardized form that provides a 30-day notice of an applicant's intent to file an application, which is what triggers the review process.

CB 6 asks applicants to complete a liquor license questionnaire, which includes the names of officers/managers/owners, the previous premises they've operated, and details about the operation, including cuisine, target age of customer base, music/entertainment plans, hours/days of operation, and square footage/seating capacity/floor plan.

Community Boards cannot veto or approve a license application, but have an advisory--and sometimes mediating--role. CB 2 stated in a notice:

Representatives of the applicant, the arena operator and the New York Police Department will be present at the meeting. Although not a public hearing, the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment.
