2 Warehouse District Clubs Could Lose Liquor Licenses
Two clubs in the Warehouse District in downtown Minneapolis could lose their liquor licenses as the city cracks down on Sunday night violence.
Envy and Bootleggers nightclubs on First Avenue are both in danger of losing their liquor licenses.
The City of Minneapolis says the violations at Envy include intoxicated patrons fighting, issues with security, and underage patrons without wristbands being served alcohol.
Bootleggers is accused of serving after 2 a.m. and serving intoxicated customers.
The city says violent crime is down 45 percent in the Warehouse District over the past three weeks.
The clubs have the option of closing down by Aug. 25, or they can appeal to a judge or the City Council to reconsider keeping their liquor licenses.
Neither club has returned calls from KSTP for comment.
