First, thank you so much for your patronage. We wouldn’t be in business without customers like you.
Here’s the deal:
With the changing environment of the downtown Madison businesses, we have to do SOMETHING FAST to continue to operate, let alone grow.
Obtaining a 3-way liquor license is the only way for Rembrandt’s to continue to survive.
The City of Madison has the power to allow businesses within a certain distance from the river to have what is called a “Riverfront liquor license”. You may be aware that there are only a set number of liquor licenses in a county at any given time… but that doesn’t affect a Riverfront license. If the city council agrees, they can grant this special license.
This is where you come in.
We’ve put together a petition to take to the City of Madison. All we need is for YOU to come into Rembrandt’s and sign it. We need all the signatures we can get so the city will know that you are serious about keeping Rembrandt’s open. (If you can’t make it in, you can sign the online version here.)
Here’s a copy of the petition:
We, the undersigned, request that Rembrandt’s Gallery & Wine Bar be granted a 3-way Riverfront liquor license. Rembrandt’s is an important addition to the Madison community, providing a unique upscale experience for Madison residents as well as being a highly recommended destination for visitors. It provides jobs and tax revenue to the Madison community and attracts new people to the area.
Rembrandt’s is currently the only retail restaurant serving alcohol in Jefferson County that can only serve wine. To meet the ever-increasing competition, we believe that its very survival is dependent on procuring the Riverfront license. This will allow the business to continue to be a significant benefit to the City of Madison, its residents, and out-of-town visitors.
You can visit us any time from Noon to 10:00 PM on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday to sign the petition. Better yet, come in and enjoy our wood-fired pizza, gourmet hamburgers, or prime ribeye steak (Friday and Saturday) and sign the petition while you’re here!
Thank you in advance for your help and continued patronage to Rembrandt’s. We very much appreciate your support.36
