A downtown Carson City restaurant and brewpub won a recommendation Wednesday for an unrestricted slot license from the state Gaming Control Board.
The recommendation for Doppelganger's bar and grill on Carson Street will be presented later this month to the Gaming Commission, which makes the final decision on gaming applications.
General Manager John Sieben said the license is part of an overall business plan designed to turn the former sports bar into a more upscale operation.
"In the past, the concept was to be a sports bar," Sieben told the board. "We're looking at the property from a different perspective."
