Avondale Restaurants Expanded Liquor Options on the Table in Tallahassee

More smaller restaurant may be able to serve hard liquor in Avondale.

Avondale restaurants smaller than 200 seats may qualify for a boost in revenue du to alchohol sales. 

The subject of Avondale restaurants is on the menu as lawmakers head to Tallahassee for the next legislative session.

Florida Representative Reggie Fullwood (Avondale) is going to bring up legislation that would enable more bars and restaurants in Avondale and Riverside to serve hard liquor. Under the current law, Avondale restaurants must have at least 200 seats to serve liquor beyond beer and wine. If Representative Fullwood’s bill is successful, restaurants as small as 100 seat capacity would be able to serve hard liquor.  

Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP) board member Allan DeVault, owner of the Black Sheep, likes the idea that restaurants can diversify their drink menus and include the “Craft” cocktails on their menus.  “Craft spirits and cocktails are a huge growth section of the restaurant industry,” DeVault said. “Not to mention having a full bar is a positive.”
