Council Delays Vote on Liquor License for The Flightt Nightclub


By Ellis Eskew

The owner of a new nightclub in Montgomery will have to wait longer to find out if he'll get a liquor license.
     The City council decided Tuesday evening to postpone the vote for The Flightt night club.

The Flightt is in the former location of the Rose Supper Club.
    The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board revoked The Rose Supper Club's liquor license after a shooting at the night club left six people injured.
    The ABC board says although the club is under new management with new hours, it has the same owner.
 "Centennial Hill, I've spoken with them they are developing their community and I have an understanding with them of what type of business they want up coming in the future versus what was going on in the past. IT will be nothing like that," said club manager Nicole Bankhead.

District 3 City Councilman Tracy Larkin  says, "I have heard no vocal opposition from the neighborhood or any neighborhood residents except one and I heard that one late this afternoon. That's why I felt it was imperative to carry it over for two weeks to give us an opportunity to talk to these people in the neighborhood."

Bankhead says the club will be exclusively for people age 25 and up.
The council will decide on the liquor license in two weeks.
