Saugus Bar Receives Three-Day Suspension

Lavo Ristorante & Lounge has received a three-day suspension and license rollback to 1 a.m. as punishment for alleged violations on the premises, according to the Saugus Advertiser.

The Board of Selectmen called a show-cause hearing last week to determine whether Lavo merits disciplinary action for events that occurred at the Route 1 restaurant/club on July 3 and July 4. Board members heard testimony from police officers who reported music was playing at Lavo on July 3 after the 1 a.m. permitted time. On July 4 police also observed patrons consuming alcohol on a patio more than an hour after the license allows.

The board voted 4-0 to issue Lavo a three-day suspension spanning Oct. 14-16. As part of the motion the selectmen rolled back the establishment’s liquor license by one hour — so last call at 12:30 a.m., everyone off the premises by 1 a.m. — and revoked the license that permits alcohol to be served on the patio.

Last month the selectmen suspended Lavo’s licenses for two days — Sept. 9-10 — after an inspection uncovered interior work done on site without permission and the establishment closing without notifying the board.
