JACKSON, Wyo. — A local favorite, Thai Plate, received approval from the Jackson Town Council for a restaurant liquor license during Monday’s council meeting.

Previously a bring your own alcoholic beverages (BYOB) establishment, the restaurant will be able to serve beer, wine and liquor under this new license.

In the state of Wyoming, BYOB restaurants are not monitored by the state, there are no licenses or oversight of BYOB restaurants. Patrons are permitted to consume their own alcohol on the premises.

In April, the family-owned Thai restaurant moved from its original location at 135 North Cache Street to 145 North Glenwood Street due to the construction of phase 2 of Hotel Jackson.

The Darwiche family owns both properties and will continue to be the restaurant’s landlord. They are removing the building they own at 135 North Cache Street to move forward with phase 2 of Hotel Jackson.

The new location on North Glenwood Street was most recently the home of Utilete, and Phoenix and the Dragon and Lotus Cafe prior to that.

The restaurant signed a lease in April of 2021 for a term ending on May 30, 2026.

the license fee is $1,262 and is valid through March 31, 2022. It will need to be renewed on that date.

The Council approved the license unanimously but with the conditions that Thai Plate would present required town permits and licenses

During the meeting, Vice Mayor Arne Jorgensen thanked the applicant and said he, “very much looked forward to their new location.”

Councilmember Jonathan Schechter chimed in saying, “Best of luck.”
