HoB Boston Faces Alcohol Suspension

Boston’s House of Blues, which was reopened by Live Nation in February, may be hit with a weeklong suspension of its alcohol license by the Boston Licensing Board over two separate instances of underage drinking that landed minors in the hospital.

The board recently voted to issue four- and three-day suspensions for the two violations, according to the Boston Herald. Once it receives notice by certified mail from the board, Live Nation has five days to appeal the decision to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission. It wasn’t known at press time if LN had done so.

If LN doesn’t appeal, or loses, the board can then set a date for the suspension. Another option is that Live Nation reportedly could request that the HoB club and restaurant remain open for a week without alcohol service.

A spokesman for Live Nation wasn’t immediately available for comment.
