The Club now needs to get approval from the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission and then the license will be restored.
There appears to be one last hurdle for the Irish Social Club of Boston to get back their full all-alcohol license restored after Boston's Licensing Board approved the license on Wednesday. The last hurdle is for the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission to approve the license, which is expected to take anywhere from six to 13 weeks. The club has been using one night special licenses for all its events after a member mistakenly gave back the extremely valuable all alcohol license for the club. The club was going to close last year, but was saved by the community, and has enjoyed a revitalization as a spot for local events.
