La Copa De Oro Bar Has Liquor License Revoked

October 17, 1998|SOLOMON MOORE

A bar that has been cited for state liquor violations four times in as many years had its license revoked Friday.

The owners of La Copa De Oro at 15310 Parthenia St. allegedly allowed two women to solicit customers to buy them drinks at inflated prices.

For instance, the regular price for a beer was $3.75, but if a customer bought a drink for one of the solicitors it was $8.75, said Carl De Wing, spokesman for the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Bars with illegal solicitation have a higher incidence of drug-dealing and prostitution, De Wing said.

In the past four years Los Angeles police have cited the bar over the sale of alcohol to intoxicated customers, illegal use of slot machines and illegal solicitation, De Wing said.

Jesus Larios, manager of La Copa De Oro, said he found a notice on the bar's door when he arrived to open the business Friday. "We don't know why they suspended our license," he said.
