One of Bloomington’s most famous and controversial bars lives to serve alcohol another year.
According to the Bloomington Herald-Times, Kilroy’s on Kirkwood’s alcohol license was renewed Wednesday by the Monroe County Alcoholic Beverage Board. The board voted 2-1 to renew the bar’s license for one year instead of the normal two-year period.
Kilroy’s license was last renewed in 2018 for a one-year period after the board heard testimony from the bar’s representatives and citizens who felt the popular Kirkwood spot was a public nuisance. Katharine Liell was the only board member to vote against the license in 2018 and 2019.
