Bonelaw’s Liquor Team Helps Nashville International Airport Enhance Guest Experience

Bone McAllester Norton’s Alcoholic Beverage Law team has worked with the Nashville International Airport on all of its liquor licensing needs and recently obtained an airport-wide license, which allows passengers to purchase adult beverages and enjoy them throughout the airport.

“When we began this project, we asked, ‘Why should alcohol be contained to restaurants and bars off the concourse?’” said Will Cheek, who leads the firm’s alcohol practice. “State law describes the license as being the ‘terminal building.’  It took about a year of discussions with licensing authorities, but in the end, we licensed the concourses, and customers can now carry alcohol to their gate or a quiet table or sip while shopping.”

Only a few other airports offer this amenity, so Nashville’s airport may be on the verge of setting a trend. This experience allows travelers to purchase up to two drinks in any restaurant, bar or lounge and take the drinks with them throughout the concourses in the terminal. Assistant Director of Properties Rebecca Ramsey says this gives passengers the opportunity to enjoy all of the other amenities at the airport while they wait for their flight.

Will Cheek Talks to Newschannel 5 about Airport-Wide Beer Permit

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Will Cheek spoke with Newschannel 5 reporter Jason Lamb yesterday about an airport-wide beer permit that would allow restaurants, retail stores and bars to sell beer past the security checkpoint. Those selling alcohol would only have to notify the Beer Board of where sales would take place rather than applying for a separate permit.

Will said the change would allow for beer and alcohol sales to match the increased traffic at Nashville International Airport and that lines at restaurants and bars would become shorter.
