Morro Bay bar's license suspended for violations

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Department suspended the liquor license of a local bar on Tuesday, after officials reportedly found numerous violations of the permit.

The Buoy Bar at 2940 Main St. in Morro Bay will not be allowed to sell alcohol for 25 days under a disciplinary action handed down by the state agency.

The suspension came after state officials, working with the Morro Bay Police Department during an investigation from January to March, reportedly found open drug use, a bartender working under the influence of drugs and minors who had been allowed to enter and remain at the establishment.

The suspension will be lifted on July 13, according to the department. The bar’s license will remain under “stayed revocation” probationary status for one year.
