NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The License Commission on Tuesday approved Hotel Downstreet for an all-alcohol license.
Innkeeper Tyler Carroll, representing NA Hotel LLC, said the hotel would sell bottles and cans for consumption within the hotel.
"What we're going be doing is retail down below, which will be sold as a whole bottle of wine or premixed cocktail, the idea would be to serve those type of items," he said. "And then the only time we would be pouring a glass would be in the banquet space, which would be controlled by a staff member."
Although the license would cover hard alcohol, Carroll said the hotel would not be selling that at this time. The goal for now is wine and canned drinks such as the popular hard seltzers.
"We wouldn't be sending a bottle of Jack Daniels upstairs for sale," he said.
The license is specific to the hotel and does not include the restaurant, which is operated by a separate entity.
The commission also approved a one-day license to serve beer and wine for an event in the hotel's Studios B and C. The event, which will feature Jarvis Rockwell, runs from 5 to 7 on Thursday.
Another application for a one-day license by 413 Bistro, the restaurant located in the hotel, was continued as no one was there to speak the request.
