Liquor license suspended at Three Bear Inn

Local News

Another 33 bars and restaurants in the state had their liquor license suspended over the weekend for violating COVID-19 orders, including the Three Bear Inn on Broome Street in Marathon.

On September 3rd, an SLA investigator made an undisclosed visit to the premises following complaints and observed a band playing outside with around 30 patrons consuming alcohol and ignoring social distancing regulations.

Multiple patrons were not wearing facial coverings, according to the SLA.

The establishment was also found to be serving alcohol from an unlicensed bar outside and without food, despite previously being warned by the SLA following prior social distancing complaints in late May and early June.

Suspension orders are served immediately and remain in effect indefinitely, with the maximum penalty including the permanent revocation of the license and fines of up to $10,000 per violation.

Licensees subject to an emergency suspension are entitled to an expedited hearing before an SLA Administrative Law Judge.

“Under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, our task force has made a real impact and we are seeing better compliance. We will continue to crack down on the small number of businesses that continue to operate in violation of the law and common sense — risking both New Yorkers’ health and our continued progress,” said State Liquor Authority Chair Vincent Bradley.
