Club 410 sets the bar for liquor license violations
Today, I was skimming the schedule for Thursday's liquor board hearings when I almost spat my Coke Zero all over my computer screen.
Club 410 (4507-09 Belair Road) has an absolutely epic list of offenses. Except for Suite Ultralounge, I can't remember the last time I saw a bar get in trouble for so many violations all at once. Of course, this is nothing new. But still, it's shocking to read them all, one by one.
I went through and hand-picked the best offenses to post on Midnight Sun. I skipped the relatively mundane ones, like serving alcohol to minors and not framing their license.
Are you ready for Club 410's four worst offenses? Here goes ...
