Monet Lounge license revoked over violence
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—The liquor license of a Providence nightclub outside of which a man was recently shot to death has been revoked.
The Providence Journal reports that the Board of Licenses on Monday revoked the liquor license of the Monet Lounge after two violent incidents, including the fatal shooting in August of a 38-year-old Massachusetts man.
More than 50 people were involved in a melee at the same club in April. The venue was temporarily shut down after that incident.
An attorney for the club tells the newspaper he will appeal the decision to the state. He will ask that the club be allowed to remain open while the appeal is being considered.
