City committee recommends bar's liquor license request

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A downtown Wilmington bar is one step closer to reopening.

The city's ABC Review Committee today gave a positive recommendation for Edward Peabody's ABC permit application. Peabody wants to open a bar called the Brikhouse at the site of the old Rox nightclub at 208 Market Street.

The permit now goes to the city manager, who will decide whether to recommend the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission approve the application.
