Wheeling village trustees initially seemed dead set against granting a liquor license to the Party Fantasy entertainment center, but by the end of the Monday night's village board meeting business owner Adi Mor had persuaded the panel into giving his request further thought.
Mor said he cannot operate the business at 7150 Capitol Drive without a special events liquor license. Party Fantasy opened recently with features like go-carts and a climbing wall.
Trustees were concerned about the safety of serving alcohol where vehicles and a climbing wall are used, but Mor insists his staff can regulate the business and keep anyone who is drinking from driving or climbing. Party Fantasy will be closed to the public during private parties, said Mor, who owns another Party Fantasy in Mundelein.
The question will be on the board's agenda again Sept. 3.
