Ocala City commissioners grant alcoholic beverage permits to two businesses

The Ocala City Council gave its blessings Tuesday night for two area businesses to obtain alcoholic beverage permits.

The first permit went to Noire the Nail Bar, a 2,000-square-foot business located at 2419 SW 27th Ave. that requested the permit to allow for the sale of beer and wine for on-site consumption. The hours will be from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Twelve other businesses that sell alcohol are located within a 500-foot radius of the business.

The second permit went to Petarcgar LLC for IrieEats Ocala, located at 46 S Magnolia Ave. The permit allows the 1,784-square-foot business to serve beer and wine both inside and outside the eatery. The hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday. Twenty other businesses that sell alcohol are located in a 500-foot radius of the establishment.

The permits will be provisional for three months, upon which time the applicants can request they be extended an additional three months. During the provisional period, the permit holders must provide to the city’s building department copies of the vendor’s state-issued alcoholic beverage license. If that doesn’t happen, or if the name on the state-issued license isn’t the same as the name of the permit holder, the permit will be voided. Otherwise, it will become fully issued.
