Liquor board closes Club Phantom

Club Phantom, the nightspot which replaced Kamp on Boston Street, has been shut down by the liquor board. According to chairman Stephan Fogleman, the liquor board indefinitely suspended Phantom's license, which the board will give back to another creditor after a new buyer is found.

gee willakers, I didn't even know it was ever open! I loved seeing the stupid sign for it.

this place was actually open? who knew?

Nice to see the liquor board trying to make up for their failure to get Ultralongue padlocked. If they can just get rid of Cheerleaders in Fells, I'll be a happy girl.

TAPs is next

In terms of Cheerleaders, there is a license transfer and request for outdoor service hearing coming up. It is posted on the window of the bar. You can write a letter to protest and they will contact you of the date of the hearing. I know myself and several other people are writing letters to protest. Hopefully with enough support something will be done about the place. I will post the adress to send letters later.

Hey, I LIKE Cheerleaders.
