ALTOONA, Wis. (WEAU) -- The former Whiskey's Grill and Bar building could re-open as a family-style restaurant as soon as next month.
The Altoona City Council has a discussion and a vote on a proposed liquor license for the facility on its agenda for Thursday night. The city says owner Brad Windeshausen surrendered his liquor license as of March 11 with the condition that it be granted to Pete Hebert. He wants to lease the building on Harlem Street in Altoona and run the restaurant there. Hebert says the facility has always had the capability to be family-friendly. He says he has made a lot of big changes inside the building, and that it appears differently inside than it did as Whiskey's. He did not elaborate. Hebert did say he would probably open around the first week of April.
Whiskey's closed in January. At the time, Windeshausen had said that he was retiring from the restaurant and bar industry.
