Hamilton restaurant charged after alleged party
A Hamilton restaurant faces charges and will have its business licence reviewed after allegedly hosting an indoor party on May 28.
Allure Lounge on Barton Street East was charged five times under the Reopening Ontario Act after bylaw officers were called there, City of Hamilton emergency operations director Paul Johnson said Monday during a weekly COVID-19 update. Johnson said bylaw officers visited after “some loud music was heard on the street level.” Officers found more than 10 people attending a party.
The ROA prohibits indoor gatherings while Ontario is under a stay-at-home order.
"This is a business that has had charges in the past," Johnson said. "We are reviewing this and reviewing the business licence, as well."
Allure Lounge specializes in Caribbean fare. It was the lone Hamilton business fined under the ROA during the past week.
