Samantha Hayes Reporting A Park City private club is facing serious allegations about what goes on behind its doors. Police reports say adult entertainment is being provided at the club. Now its private club permit may be on the line.
When police officers investigated the Monkey Bar on Park City's Main Street they observed several violations of its license.
Sheila Page, Attorney for DABC: “The majority of evidence is whether or not there are violations of a sexual entertainment nature.”
Those police reports caused the Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control to issue this complaint. Six violations are listed in detail alledging the Monkey Bar allowed exposure and touching of private body parts, simulation of sexual acts, and nearly naked entertainers to mingle with patrons.
Licensing papers say when the owner of the Monkey Bar applied for a private club license in December of 2003 that the only entertainment provided would be recorded music, TV, and board games.
Sheila Page: “The majority of violations against the Monkey Bar are grave. That's the most serious category of violations under the licensing statutes.”
Club owner Greg Davison is contesting the complaint in a licensing hearing this week..
If the liquor committee finds the club guilty of providing adult entertainment, sanctions could include up to a $75,000 fine and possible removal of its private club license. The hearing wraps up tomorrow. At that time a recommendation will be made to the Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control committee
