A Mishawaka bar is closed, thanks to repeated incidents that required police intervention.
As a matter of public safety, the Hideout Lounge has been closed for about a week after a renewal of their liquor license was denied, according to WSBT.
The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Office has responded to 120 calls there in the last four years. For instance, in May 2015, two people were killed in a shooting outside of the establishment.
The Hideout Lounge attempted to transfer the liquor license to a new owner in November, a move that was also denied. Indiana’s Alcohol & Tobacco Commission in Indianapolis upheld the decision and struck down two attempted appeals.
The Hideout posted a sign at the door saying they will reopen, but state officials say new management would likely be required for that to occur.
