Task force tackles nightclub issues

Posted 9/30/13

PROVIDENCE – Col. Steven G. O’Donnell, superintendent of the R.I. State Police and commissioner of the R.I. Department of Public Safety, announced that public-safety agencies have formed a task force to address safety issues associated with nightclubs, consumption of alcohol by underage persons and other alcohol-related offenses.

The task force conducts nightclub-compliance checks, responds to areas identified as being “problematic” due to excessive use of alcohol, and consumption of alcohol by underage persons.

The news release said that the task force has been active throughout the state since the beginning of September and has inspected a total of 30 nightclubs. Six of these nightclubs were cited for regulatory violations. Four nightclubs were found to have underage persons inside consuming alcoholic beverages.

Establishments cited for underage drinking or alcohol possession included: Celtic Lounge at Finnegan’s Wake and Louie’s Tavern in Providence; and Bon Vue Inn and Charlie O’s Tavern in Narragansett.

Amici Bar and Grill and Eagles International Bar, both in Providence, were cited for fire-code violations. •
