Container Park Asking City to Loosen Liquor Restrictions

The new Container Park downtown is marketed as family friendly, but the owners of the outdoor shopping and dining area want the city of Las Vegas to ease up on liquor license restrictions.

The city put tough restrictions on the bars inside the Container Park before it opened. Now that it is up and running, the owners are asking for changes.

There are concerns that if the city makes an exception for the container park, other downtown bars will want exemptions too.

"What is it that we want our community to look like? And what are the separations and what should be required and what should not be required?" Las Vegas City Councilman Ricki Barlow said.

Las Vegas city leaders decided to hold off on a decision.

They will discuss the issue again next month, when the park's temporary liquor license comes up for review.
