Fifth city bar loses its liquor license

Xavier's Place appeals, allowing it to stay open in Lawrence

(Continued)

“This is what we expect of the Licensing Board,” Rivera said in a prepared statement.

If the ABCC upholds the board’s decision to shut Xavier’s, the bar would join four others shut by the city and state since the crackdown on Lawrence nightlife began in July 2012. The four are Casa de Sirena on Jackson Street, Marabu Cafe on Union Street, La Guira on Broadway and Fuego Latino on Broadway.

Information was not available yesterday about how the five revocations in two years ranks Lawrence among municipalities statewide in seizing liquor licenses from offending bars. But Jon Carlisle, a spokesman for the ABCC, said Methuen, Haverhill and Lowell have revoked no licenses over the same period.
