KC Live block getting its first local tenant

Scanning through the list of businesses with liquor licenses pending, I noticed an old Lawrence favorite of mine.

Johnny’s Tavern,

the institution born north of the Kaw in 1953, is in the “awaiting

documents” stage of the licensing process. That means I’m in the “awaiting drinking” stage of the process.

The sports bar — which has locations in Prairie

Village, Blue Valley, Olathe, Shawnee, Overland Park and Lawrence —

would open at 1310 Grand, just north of Vinino. Johnny’s has applied for a 3 a.m. and a Sunday license.
