City trying to expand entry limit for Madison bars

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) — The City of Madison and Madison police are working to expand restrictions for some downtown bars.

For the past year, some bars have not been allowed to let people in after 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. On Thursday night, the city’s Alcohol License Review Committee (ALRC) put those restrictions into the liquor licenses of some establishments.

Bill Rudy owns The Double U and Chasers Bar & Grille. He says even though he knows some bar owners don’t support the limits, he does.

“For me, if it hasn’t affected my business and it is safe, it’s a win-win,” Rudy told ALRC members Thursday.

Police say the entry limit was one way to combat bar-time violence in downtown Madison.

The Common Council still has to sign off on the license changes.
