The DL’s Dealing With Liquor-License Drama

Bottles of drinks are lined up at a club in Hefei, east China's Anhui province on November 8, 2011. As the many million of graduates and white collar job seeks pouring into China big cities in search of thrill and better life, they regulate thrill ridden entertainment venues and are decorating the night scenes of the city's disco clubs. Alcohol, sex, dances, and shows are all part of the funs, especially on the weekend, that night entertainment venues, bars, taverns, social clubs and disco clubs are springing up like mushrooms.

Is the old Ludlow Manor space haunted? After the State Liquor Authority shut down the establishment in 2012, it reopened as the DL. But at last night's CB3 meeting, board members were shocked to learn that before they could review the DL's liquor-license renewal, the State Liquor Authority had already approved it. Major backfire: Everyone reacted by complaining about how the Lower East Side club makes the neighborhood a miserable place, and although a vote might not matter, board members denied the motion to renew. This isn't the first time they've fought back. [Bowery Boogie]
