Hard Times tavern falls on hard times: loses license

The Hard Times bar in Remington lost its liquor license last week after the liquor board found the business had been closed for more than a year.

Under state law, a liquor establishment loses its license if it is closed for 360 consecutive days. The board found the bar had been closed at least since April 2001. Neighbors of the bar, at 28th Street and Huntington Avenue, said the business had contributed to crime and noise when it was open. They urged the Board of Liquor License Commissioners to revoke the license at a hearing Thursday.

"That time had elapsed, and [the board] ruled that it must close," said Nathan C. Irby Jr., executive secretary of the board.
