(There will be a total of 30 bars with full liquor service and 23 with beer only.)

After an administrative law judge heard public testimony at two meetings in June, the SLA will consider the Barclays Center liquor license at its August 29 board meeting. It will be held at SLA offices in Harlem, beginning at 10 am, and should be webcast.
