HOUSTON COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — A liquor license was denied by the Houston County Commission for a new bar and grill where a strip club had been located.

Horizon Bar and Grill location used to be the location of Teasers’ Gentlemen’s Club.

Now, one of the former Teasers’ owners is trying to open just a bar and grill.

Last year, two shootings within 4 months in the Teasers’ parking lot resulted in the club’s closure.

The commission denied the request for a new liquor license due to concerns commissioners received from citizens and the location’s past history.
