Liquor license revoked at Druid Hill Avenue bar

March 21, 2008|By Brent Jones

The city liquor board yesterday revoked the license for Sugar Hill Tavern in the 2300 block of Druid Hill Ave., citing drug activity within the bar and a significant number of violations for underage drinking.

More than a dozen police reports since July have been filed about that establishment, the liquor board said.

Most of the allegations concerned drug sales between patrons, according to Stephan Fogleman, chairman of the liquor board, the state agency that regulates bars and adult entertainment venues in the city.

Sugar Hill Tavern, owned by Ho K. Lawley, will be closed pending a possible appeal in Circuit Court.

The Northwest Baltimore bar is the second establishment closed by the city liquor board since last week.

Board officials revoked the license for Chuck's Place, in the 3100 block of Eastern Ave. near Highlandtown.

Fogleman said police in August seized about 7 ounces of cocaine and $11,000 at Chuck's Place.
