A tavern on Peoria's south-side is denied a 4 am liquor license, mainly due to an increase in crime.
The city's liquor commission approved Kareena's Sports Bar for the 4 am liquor license earlier this month.
The bar located on Southwest Adams Street is eligible to extend its hours from 2 to 4 am because it is located in the correct zone.
But, Tuesday night the City Council voted unanimously against an extension.
Councilwoman Denise Moore told News Partner News 25, longer hours for another establishment could lead to more problems in the community.
It's unknown when the issue might be brought to the floor again.
