ABC Posts a Revocation at an Oxnard Bar Named Mona Lisa
Crack down on multiple illegal solicitations of alcoholic beverages and narcotic violations
Oxnard – On October 28, 2020, The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) posted a revocation notice at an ABC licensed premises operating under the name of Mona Lisa, located at 703 South Oxnard Boulevard in the City of Oxnard. The business is immediately prohibited from selling, serving and allowing consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Undercover agents visited the location numerous times during an investigation and discovered violations that involved illegal drink solicitations and the sales of narcotics inside the premises. These violations resulted in a 54-count accusation filed against the licensee’s Type 42 On-Sale Beer and Wine Public Premises License.
Illegal drink solicitation schemes involve bar servers who place a surcharge on alcoholic beverages in exchange for keeping patron’s company. Such practices can contribute to the over service of alcohol which can result in increased DUI’s, public drunkenness and other violations of law.
ABC encourages licensees to sign up for ABC’s Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs (LEAD) training free of charge. Licensees and their employees can now take the training online. They can also sign up for training in person in a classroom setting.
ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.
