A jazz club could be coming to Naperville.
About the Idea
“It’s like theater-style seating, and for $5 you get a bowl of chili and if you want beer or wine you can purchase that as well. So that’s kind of what my idea is,” explained Ellman.
He has yet to obtain a location for the club, but has the former School of Performing Arts on Washington Street in mind.
The Commission’s Response
The commission approved Ellman’s request, granting him the Class R Theater House liquor license.
However, instead of cutting off drink service at intermission, the commission voted to give Ellman a modification that would allow drinks to be served during performances and with service stopping a half hour before they end.
The proposal now goes to Naperville City Council for final approval.
Lifestyle Amenities Licenses
In other news from the meeting – it will now be cheaper for lifestyle amenities facilities, such as beauty salons, to serve a glass of alcohol under the Class M license.
