In Woodbury, Cheers Pablo, Osaka, Sheraton, Pei Wei Secure Liquor Licenses

The Woodbury City Council unanimously approved all four during Wednesday night’s meeting.

Cheers Pablo, a new Woodbury art studio that will teach classes to groups—and serve food and wine—is set to open before Valentine’s Day, the owner told Patch.

It will open at 8362 Tamarack Village, next door to LensCrafters.

Cheers Pablo CEO John Bedard, who lives in Woodbury, was on hand with his wife Chriscell for the City Council’s approval of a liquor license for the establishment. (The council approved three other licenses, as well.)

“There is a real need for it in the community and we hope to inspire a lot of people,” Bedard said in December.

It’s meant to be a “social gathering-type spot,” he said.

“The main objective is that everybody has a great time,” Bedard said.


Osaka, set to open in the former Kenichi Japanese and Sushi space at Woodbury Lakes, also secured a liquor license at the meeting.

The restaurant decided to change the placement of some of its hibachi tables and is in the process of getting the plans approved, said Laurie Mordorski, marketing director at Woodbury Lakes.

There is no firm date for Osaka’s opening, she said.

Other Licenses

The Sheraton Hotel in Woodbury was recently sold, necessitating a new liquor license for its bar/restaurant.

Pei Wei is converting to a limited liability corporation (LLC), and it had to get a new license.
