If you're a fan of The Mellow Mushroom, then we've got some great news for you! The  restaurant took one step closer to re-opening, after the Tuscaloosa City Council approved a liquor license on Tuesday, (12/18).

The city council approved the ABC application for the license for Mellow Mushroom, (Crimson Coconut LLC), at 557 20th Ave, which is where Post Office Pies was previously located.

The old Mellow Mushroom,  previously located on University Boulevard, closed down last year after 18 years of business due to raising rent rates. However, they always kept an eye out for a possible Tuscaloosa return.

The new owners don't have a specific grand re-opening date set for The Mellow Mushroom, but are hopeful that it will happen early sometime next year.

The Mellow Mushroom also plans to continue their tradition of selling locally brewed beer, plus of course, their renowned pizza.
