Wolin & Rosen Secures Liquor License, Public Place of Amusement License and Patio License for Gold Coast Boutique Hotel

Wolin & Rosen, representing a Gold Coast hotel with rooftop bar, successfully navigated the hotel through the City of Chicago Municipal Code and secured necessary business licenses. Charles Mack and John Lower of Wolin & Rosen filed Tavern, Outdoor Patio, and Public Place of Amusement (PPA) licensure applications, challenged initial denials of each, orchestrated community outreach, negotiated a plan of operation, and ultimately secured licenses to serve liquor in its rooftop bar and on its outdoor terrace. A license was also obtained to allow live or recorded music and dancing inside the main bar area. This was achieved without closure of the premises.
