Renewal of 3 Youngstown bars’ liquor licenses up for vote

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) –¬†Youngstown City Council will vote Wednesday to object on the renewals of liquor permits at three Youngstown bars:

  • Southern Tavern on Glenwood Avenue
  • Last Call on South Avenue

The resolution also states there will be a hearing in Mahoning County on each renewal.

All three bars recently experienced violent crime in November.

A deadly shooting took place at Last Call on Nov. 29.

Four people were injured in a shooting at Deja Vu on Nov. 4.

And a shooting at Southern Tavern on Nov. 11 left one dead and five others injured.
