A local landmark is being forced into early retirement.
The Liquor Bank, a hot spot for social activity and booze consumption, was recently stripped of its permit to sell alcohol, reports show.
For more than 30 years, the one-story building composed of brick and distressed wood has occupied the southwest corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and Stocker Street.
But as it stands, the wheels on this bus will soon be coming to a screeching and indefinite halt.
After several weeks of deliberation and meetings with concerned residents, The Los Angeles City Council recently voted to “revoke the conditional use permit to sell alcohol at the Liquor Bank.”
This decision came in response to numerous complaints about loitering, prostitution, soliciting, drug-distribution, gang violence, and other nefarious activity that occurs frequently near the establishment.
“Today, we said enough is enough, our community deserves better,” said Councilmember MarqueeceHarris-Dawson.
