A simulated sadomasochistic sex show at a huge North Point Boulevard dance hall provoked an outraged Baltimore County liquor board yesterday to dish out the quickest and most severe penalty it has invoked in recent memory.The board, which refused to grant a postponment in the case, ordered Steeltown's liquor license suspended for four weeks, starting Monday night, and imposed a $1,500 fine.

Steeltown, a new cavernous dance-sports-breakfast bar in the 2400 block of North Point Blvd., is about as dramatic a departure from the typical eastern Baltimore County watering hole as may be possible.In place of the old Whitehouse Tavern, where go-go dancers entertained a blue-collar crowd for lunch in the rundown North Point Plaza shopping center, stands a brand newbuilding within a building, with more features than can be described in one sentence.And no go-go girls.The concept behind Steeltown, which can accommodate 1,500 people, is similar to the Fish Market complex that closed two years ago near the Inner Harbor: distinctly themed bars and restaurants inside a larger building.
