OMAHA, Nebraska — After what a city attorney describes as “a pattern of attacks and disturbances,” the liquor license of a downtown Omaha pub is in danger.
Tuesday, the Omaha City Council will decide whether or not to investigate Throwback Arcade Lounge.
In council filings, city attorney Ryan Wiesen writes that there have been attacks and fights in and around the bar at 14th and Howard Streets, as well as numerous instances of public urination and overserving of clients.
Wiesen stated that bar administration has participated in the council’s law committee to address some of these issues, but problems persist.
If the council approves the motion on Tuesday, the bar management will submit a lengthy application and then return to the city council, which will decide whether or not to renew the liquor license.
The Good Life Sports Bar and Grill in West Omaha underwent a similar procedure in 2021. Chad McMahon, its owner, is required for the business to maintain its license.
Owner Chad McMahon has sold all The Good Life pub outlets following a liquor licensing limbo.
