NYPD Serves Restraining Order to Lolita for Illegal Sale of Alcohol [Updated]
Lolita is currently experiencing some pains during this recent transition period. For one, the Lower East Side fixture was reportedly sold to Matthew Kelly, owner of Marshall Stack. No word just yet on how this will affect the bar-going experience there. But that’s the least of the issues here.
The watering hole just fell victim to the NYPD, as officers
shuttered the bar served a restraining order due to the alleged “illegal sale of alcohol.” Alleged underage drinking. That enormous yellow sticker and requisite court-ordered paperwork are collectively pasted to the front door.
UPDATE: It’ll open for business as usual tonight.
The action here conjures memories of the widespread 7th Precinct crackdown of late 2011.
