PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Four years after getting rid of its liquor license, a Region 8 restaurant has applied for a new permit to serve alcohol.
The Alcoholic Beverage Control board in Little Rock announced Monday that Ta Molly’s Mexican Restaurant, 1700 Linwood Dr. in Paragould, has applied for a new private club permit.
Ivan L. Rubio submitted the application last week.
In 2010, the restaurant relinquished its permit to serve alcohol.
Citing research, the owners at the time told Region 8 News they believed getting a liquor license was “the wrong decision.”
“We’re not only just trying to get back to what we think is right,” said Kenny Brown, Ta Molly’s director of operations. “We’re going to also try to effectively get that message to the community that we haven’t been the partner that we intended to be.”
In related news, Roy’s Lake Street Bar and Grill, 111 Lake Street in Paragould, also applied last week for a new restaurant beer and wine permit.
