Here Lounge, a West Hollywood gay bar located at 696 N. Robertson Blvd., is facing penalties from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control for allegations of lewd conduct by go-go dancers, according to the San Diego Gay and Lesbian News.
The bar closed last week under order of the ABC department and cannot reopen until Jan. 1, 2014.
The following was posted to Here's Facebook page: "We appreciate the support from everyone online and those of you with criticism we appreciate the feedback. We are taking this time to improve our property, nights and level of customer service. We look forward to seeing all of you celebrate with us when we reopen January 3rd."
The Here suspension and fines against Mickys at 8857 Santa Monica Blvd. prompted the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to convene a meeting between bar owners and ABC representatives last month, according to WEHOville.
