Representatives for the sports bar were in front of the Wentzville Planning and Zoning Commission Thursday night. If approved—Hotshots would have to get final approval from the city's board of aldermen—it would move into a location on the west side of Highway Z, just north of Wentzville Bluffs Drive.
On Thursday, Hotshots was requesting a conditional use permit for the sale of liquor by the drink and indoor gaming.
The sports bar, which would provide indoor and outdoor dining, would help anchor a 26-acre development in the area.
Now, the closest Hotshots to Wentzville is in O'Fallon. Officials for Hotshots anticipate the Wentzville location to do in excess of $2 million in sales annually. The restaurant would also likely bring in more than a dozen jobs.
