TD Lounge, Club Choices and Chubbies will not be shut down
Three city clubs who drew complaints from neighborhood residents over noise, violence and ... various adult-oriented complaints ... will keep their liquor licenses.
TD Lounge, Club Choices and Chubbies Club have reached settlements with concerned community members, according to a source at the Board of Liquor License Commissioners.
I don't have all of the details, and I'm planning on calling these places today. But it's really hard to get a hold of club owners/managers who can speak on the record about this kind of thing. So I'll share what I know from the liquor board source.
According to the source, TD Lounge (1717 Eastern Ave.), formerly Timothy Dean Bistro, will stop having live entertainment ...
Neighbors of the Fells Point spot were upset last year when the upscale restaurant morphed into a lounge with DJs and dancing on weekends.
Club Choices (1815 N. Charles St.), which has a long-standing history of violence, promised to step up its security detail to prevent further altercations and help control the flow of foot traffic at closing time.
The owners of Chubbies, a gentleman's club at 2000 Eastern Ave., agreed to plant shrubbery outside so passersby can't see inside, and stop dancers from taking smoke breaks by the front of the building.
All three clubs pledged to take more input from their relative community associations.
