On Monday, the North San Antonio Burnhouse bar became the first in the city of Alamo to have its alcohol license suspended for failure to comply with state policies to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Operation Safe Open, the initiative of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to help safely reopen the Texas economy, has so far closed 17 Texas bars for not following capacity and social distance rules.
At press time, the “exclusive nightclub with a unique rooftop bar” is the first and only San Antonio establishment on the list.
“These violations represent a very small number of the 3,500 licensed companies inspected by TABC since early May,” said TABC President Kevin J. Lilly in a press release.
“The vast majority of business owners are showing their commitment to keeping customers and employees safe, and we are grateful for all of their hard work. TABC is committed to helping the industry as we all work for safe Texas.”
