A new restaurant, Zaya 1943 Korean BBQ, opened at 300 Cherokee Blvd. on May 2.
The business received a beer permit at the city beer board meeting on Thursday.
The large restaurant with an occupancy of 220 has fire tables where customers cook their own food.
The Chattanooga Marriott Downtown, 2 Carter Plaza, also was given a license to sell beer at multiple restaurants and bars in the hotel.
The new permit was needed because of a change in ownership that will take place on May 17. The hotel, which will remain a Marriott brand, will undergo renovations beginning in the lobby. It will be fully operational during the renovations.
