The Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approved a specific-use permit for a private club for First Round Draft Bar & Grill in Frisco Square during the Nov. 27 regular meeting.
According to city staff, the restaurant owners want a full-service bar and would anticipate deriving 60 percent or more of its gross revenue from the sale or service of alcoholic beverages. This would require a specific-use permit, according to the city’s zoning ordinance.
The restaurant opened in Frisco Square last spring at 8898 Coleman Blvd.
City staff said because the establishment is located in a mixed-use development and the area is shown as an urban center on the city’s future land use plan, a private club permit is compatible with the surrounding development.
“I personally support this; I think we need to have a little more night life down there in Frisco Square,” Commission Chair Rob Cox said.
The commission approved the permit under several conditions that include that the restaurant owners obtain and maintain appropriate permitting from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
