The Peach Palace nightclub will be dry on Friday and Saturday night.

The Rome City Commission on Monday levied a two-day suspension of the beer, wine and liquor pouring licenses held by the establishment at 425 Broad St.

The city’s Alcohol Control Commission recommended the sanctions after a second violation in 12 months of the ordinance requiring servers to wear their permits.

In a related discussion, Commissioner Bill Collins again raised the issue of lowering the 50-50 food-to-drink ratio required at establishments serving alcohol.

Collins and Commissioner Duane Reid said the ratio is unfair to businesspeople who want to open youth-oriented venues with a focus on dancing and other entertainment.

Mayor Wright Bagby Jr. said the ACC is due to take up the issue at its next meeting — but several commissioners signaled that a speedy resolution is unlikely.
