With time and age restrictions in place, a liquor license for the Downtown Container Park will be up for discussion and a possible vote at Wednesday’s Las Vegas City Council meeting.

The issue of alcohol at the outdoor mall caused some consternation months back because the mall, whose tenants include retail shops, bars, restaurants, service businesses and art galleries, also features a large playground.

With the mall’s opening coming later this month or in December — the opening date has been pushed back a number of times — the limited liquor license is one of the last pieces of government approval required.

According to city documents, some of the time and place requirements are:

• No one under 18 is allowed in the complex without a parent or legal guardian.

• Without access granted by a special-use permit, no one under 18 can be on the grounds after 9 p.m., and no one under 21 can be there after 10 p.m.

• The children’s interactive zone will be open from 9 a.m to 9 p.m.

• Operators need to obtain a special-use permit for all-ages ticketed or advertised events.

Other terms include the ongoing presence of four security personnel plus two Downtown Rangers — helpers/greeters funded by Downtown Project, which is funding the Container Park.

A final list of businesses included in the park were also in the city documents. The total number is 34. They are:

Food and beverage vendors Bin 702, Big Ern’s BBQ, The Boozery, Pinches Tacos, Pork and Beans. Small eateries Las Vegas Kettle Corn, Sweet Spot Candy Shop, Sasa Pops, CupKates and Simply Pure.

Fashion retialers 702 DTLV, American Vagabond, Boutiqueaholics, Crazy Legs, Gaby & Olivia, Jessica Galindo Fine Arts, Vegas Apparel and Winky Designs. Art stores Blackbird Studios, Disney Fine Arts, GBX3, The High Points and Lil’ Art Bodega.

Home shops Alios, Art Box, BluMarble, Fresh Wata and International Port Management Enterprise.

Specialty retail and other businesses Bolt Barbers, A to-be-determined hair salon, Jojo’s Jerky, Vapor Loft, Trikke Academy and Qualifyor Corp.
