Town voids liquor license of strip club beside convent
Chicago — A strip club next door to a suburban Chicago convent has had its liquor license taken away.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports Thursday that Stone Park mayor and liquor commissioner Beniamino Mazzulla said Club Allure violates an ordinance that prohibits the sale of liquor within 100 feet of a church, school or home for the aged.
Club Allure attorney and former investor Robert Itzkow says the ruling will be appealed to the state’s Liquor Control Commission. He also says the club will continue to offer liquor.
In January, a Cook County Circuit Court judge told the Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo to rework their 2013 lawsuit against the club. The judge dismissed arguments that the club violated prostitution regulations and local zoning laws.
Stone Park is west of Chicago.
