(A) Any organization in the city which is a club, as defined in the Dram Shop Act (ILCS Ch. 235, Act 5, § 1-3.24), may, without charge by the city of any license fee, obtain a license to sell alcoholic liquors to its own members at the building or premises actually used as the club’s quarters, upon filing with the Mayor of the city its written application therefor signed by its then current president or corresponding officer and its secretary or similar officer together with two copies of a list of names and residences of all of its members. Any license issued pursuant to this section shall be valid for one year from the date of its issuance, but may be renewed by the filing of a renewal application signed by its then current president and secretary, or corresponding officers, and attaching two copies of a list of names and residences of its then members. Any license or renewal license issued upon compliance herewith shall state upon its face that sales thereunder of alcoholic liquors are to be made only to members of the licensee club and that a violation thereof will result in the imposition of a penalty or in the revocation or suspension of the license, or both. The license shall be in the form approved by the Mayor, and shall be signed by the Mayor and attested by the Clerk. The license shall, at all times, be displayed by the licensee in a conspicuous place in the room where liquors are to be sold.
(B) The Mayor shall have and is hereby given the same right of revocation and/or suspension of any license issued pursuant to division (A) above as he or she now has, or hereafter may have, in the matter of other licenses for the sale of alcoholic liquors issued pursuant to this chapter.
