ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud city council has approved a liquor license for a new downtown bar and grill.

The Kohinoor Bar and Grill will be located at 17 7th Avenue South, next to Jets Pizza.

Owner Karamjit Sidhu is currently the manager and chef at the Star of India restaurant in St. Cloud.  He says he'll be bringing the concept of the Star of India, but will have a full liquor license, as well as a downtown atmosphere.

They plan to have outdoor patio seating on the sidewalk, with total seating for around 70 people.

Remodeling of the building is underway, and they hope to be open in early April.
