2 restaurants temporarily closed over liquor license issue

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Two local restaurants are temporarily closed while an issue with their liquor license is resolved.

Nicholson's and The Pub At Rookwood Mews are closing for renovations while resolving issues that impact the liquor license for each establishment.

At this time the state has not renewed the license for each restaurant due to an error that was made in filing necessary paperwork with the state of Ohio's Division of Liquor Control.  Nicholson's will be remain open for lunch only Monday-Friday 11am-3pm.

"We expect that we can come to a quick resolution with the State of Ohio and will use this time to move forward with planned renovations at each restaurant," says Nick Sanders, Owner.  "Our intention was to provide adequate notice to our staff and customers regarding the renovation schedule, but unfortunately the procedural issues involved with our renewal are now dictating the timeline."

Nicholson's is scheduled to begin renovations on Monday, August 30.

In addition to cleaning and repairs, The Pub At Rookwood Mews will be completely repainted inside.

Nicholson's and The Pub were also scheduled to introduce new menus in September and will proceed as planned upon re-opening.
