Kilroy’s Bar n’ Grill has been granted approval to begin selling alcohol in Broad Ripple, giving it the go-ahead to open a restaurant there despite protests from a neighborhood group.
The Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission voted 3-0 on Tuesday to give Kilroy’s a liquor permit for the location at 821 Broad Ripple Ave. The site now is home to a Cardinal Fitness center.
It received preliminary approval on Oct. 3 from the Local Alcoholic Beverage Board of Marion County
The proposal to open a Kilroy’s in Broad Ripple had drawn opposition from the Broad Ripple Village Association and some neighbors, wary of another large bar and concerned the outdoor dining area would remove too many scarce parking spaces.
Kilroy’s in Broad Ripple would be owned by Paul Murzyn, who owns another Kilroy's in downtown Indianapolis. The original Kilroy’s is in Bloomington.
