15th St.Tavern Denied Liquor License

Almost a year after being forced out of their former location by redevelopment, the owners of the 15th St. Tavern have encountered a major setback in in their efforts to set up shop at their new location, 1028 Park Ave West. According to a note sent out by Mykel Martinez this past Friday, the Curtis Park Neighborhood Committee derailed their application for a new liquor license. As a result, Martinez and his wife have given up the fight and now find themselves in debt to the tune of $30K. While it's not clear how much of that debt is related to their efforts to reopen the Tavern and how much stems from Martinez's near fatal motorcycle accident last July, the news is simply disappointing (not to mention devastating) for them, as well as the entire scene.
