State suspends downtown Livermore bar's liquor license

ABC alleges police response, sale to minors at The Venue

The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control announced Thursday it has suspended the license of a Livermore bar.

The 45-day license suspension at The Venue Bar and Lounge, located at 2293 First St., is due to what ABC officials allege was disorderly operations happening there.

According to ABC officials, between April 2017 and June 2018, police were called to the bar several times for incidents such as fights, assaults, public drunkenness and disturbing the peace. In addition, ABC officials allege the bar sold alcohol to minors.

Under the suspension, The Venue will be prohibited from selling alcohol for 45 days and bar's license will be on probation for the next three years.

During the three-year probation period, the business will be required to stop selling alcohol at 12:30 a.m. and must provide state-licensed security, ABC officials said.
