WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A downtown Wilmington bar that closed its doors because of violence is looking to open under new ownership.

Friday the city’s ABC Review Committee will review a liquor license request for 208 Market Street. That’s the site of what was Rox.

The owner of that bar said in February he would close shop when his lease ran out in September because of violence in the neighborhood.

The new owners want to open a bar called the Brikhouse, which according to the permit application would serve beer, wine and mixed drinks..

City leaders have suggested limiting the number of bars downtown because of problems with violence and the negative impact on the city’s image.
