The flavorful $Z^\prime$ model with its couplings restricted to the left-handed second generation leptons
and third generation quarks can potentially resolve the observed anomalies in $R_K$ and $R_{K^*}$. After examining
the current limits on this model from various low-energy processes, we probe this scenario at 14 TeV high-luminosity
run of the LHC using two complementary channels: one governed by the coupling of $Z'$  to $b$-quarks and the other to
muons. We also discuss the implications of the latest LHC  high mass resonance searches in the dimuon channel on the
model parameter space of our interest.
