The City Planning Commission approved our Conditional Use Permit last night at City Hall! First big step done. Now onto the Building Dept.!
— Sac Brew Bike (@sacbrewbike) May 29, 2015
A permanent home base for Sac Brew Bike was approved by city planners last week.
The bar and building with space for storage of up to four bike buses, is planned for 1519 19th Street.
Hear are some of the conditions of the permit, according to Planning Commission documents:
- The sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption off the premises is strictly prohibited.
- No distilled spirits shall be sold.
- Alcohol sales are limited to normal store hours between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.
- No coin operated games or video machines shall be allowed on the premises.
I understand all the restrictions except for the video game prohibition. What do the police have against a good game of Ms. Pac Man?
Anyway, the proposal did draw the ire of some neighbors before it was passed unanimously, reports Doug Johnson on FOX 40.
At Thursday night’s planning meeting, neighbors complained the party bikes are already too loud. Hall is disappointed the planning commissioned allowed the tasting room, feeling customers will only get louder earlier on their tour.
“The commission pretty much addressed the fact that that’s not their job,” Hall told FOX40.

Downtown Plaza cinnamon roll shop getting new location - After 28 years of ooey, gooey sweetness, Spinners bakery is leaving Sacramento's Downtown Plaza at the end of June. But its popular cinnamon rolls aren't dying. Owners Larry Taing and Sandy Taing plan to open a Spinners location inside the 76 gas station they own at 1400 Sutterville Road in Land Park.

Pre-Flight Lounge, Homeless No Longer - PBR fans, take note: Pre-Flite Lounge, downtown’s favorite dive bar, is back after a brief closure, and some argue it’s better than ever. The faux-wood paneling and super-cushy lounge chairs may be gone, but the new spot boasts a longer bar and some of the same kitsch that gave the original location much of its character.
