Five businesses are trying to land a coveted liquor license for the city of Cheyenne. Businesses have until the end of September to submit their applications to try and get the new liquor license. One will be for an establishment at the corner of 17th and Carey in downtown in the old Browns Shoe Fit Store, the other applicants are looking at utilizing the liquor license at 1620 Pershing, near Gold’s Gym, at the old steam plant building downtown, at the corner of Dell Range and Powderhouse. Sam’s Club is also seeking the license. Councilman Scott Roybal said the liquor license is very valuable, and he would like to see the license go downtown.
The City of Cheyenne is also developing the west edge and the old steam plant would be a big part of the west revitalization. Mayor Rick Kaysen said he knows that will bring a little controversy when picking where the liquor license lands.
Cheyenne was awarded an additional liquor license due to population growth.
