Lelcaj, who called the license babo's "missing link," said the market will carry 45 different wines, mostly priced under $25. There will also be a variety of beer with an emphasis on Michigan brews.
The alcohol is available for purchase and will also be served at the market, with four rotating wines available each day. Lelcaj said patrons can sit inside or on the new outdoor patio, which has seating for roughly 40 people.
She plans to launch a happy hour next week that will likely offer half-off prices on beer and wine.
Council Member Tony Derezinski, D-2nd Ward and the city’s liquor license hearing officer, said Bar Louie’s previous license had some restrictions on it and the additions to the license will allow the bar to host receptions and have some dancing.
