If you're planning on going to a club for New Year's, you might want to go to clubs without charges against them. According to the Post, the State Liquor Authority is cracking down on city clubs that have charges pending and prohibiting them to stay open late. More than 40 clubs may be affected. Owners are upset to have the news dropped on them so late, since many clubs have been planning New Year's parties for a while - and the SLA even admits that they didn't notify the clubs that the policy would actually be enforced this year. On the other hand, it is a policy, so how much crying can operators do?
But New York Nightlife Association lawyer Robert Bookman has a point. He tells the Post, "If you're such a bad bar operator after 4 a.m., why aren't you a bad bar operator before 4 a.m.?"
