Are Liquor Licenses worth that much here in NYC, or is it fairly easy and expedient to grab one from the licensing agency?

Like if you operate a bar and want to shut down business, how much can you sell you license for? And if you have one license can you use that one for many locations, or is the license itself tied exclusively to that location?

you can sell the business but not the license. A new owner has to reapply for a license. the license is tied to the location. Applying for a new license in a new location is far more difficult than applying for a license in a existing location.

Liquor licenses are non-transferrable in NYC. So, they're valueless.

So if you have a liquor license for one location, you cannot open another bar somewhere else without getting another one for that place too?

Or if you can, can you market yourself to others looking to open an establishment but dont have a license, to come in with yours as a silent partner, so they can open up right away, and they give you a share of profits?

Bar licenses go with the bar not with the owner. If you want to open another bar you must get a separate license. You can not use your current license for a new bar.

I have seen instances where a current bar owner sells his bar and allows the new owners to continue serving under his license until the new owner is approved for a license. Thats a bit shady and requires a lot of trust between the buyer and seller..
