Email News Alerts

Changes are in the works for the 13 restaurants and three clubs that serve alcoholic beverages in Alexandria -– the Eagles, Elks and VFW.


For years, the clubs have been operating under annual $500 club liquor licenses, which are much cheaper than the $4,500 on-sale liquor licenses for restaurants.
