Little Memphis Cabaret as seen on Google Streetview

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has suspended the liquor license at Little Memphis Cabaret for five days after an investigation into a stabbing incident that took place in their parking lot last summer.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission alleges that on August 8th there was an altercation in the parking lot and a patron was stabbed by other patrons.

They say that the license holder was present during the fight, but he failed to take any measures to stop it. They also say that neither the license holder or his staff called police, and that after the fight, the bartender allowed the assailants back into the bar.

Police were eventually called by neighbors who heard the fight.

An inspector visited the bar on August 13th, and the owner denied being present during the altercation. The owner was told that other witnesses said he was there.

When confronted, the owner “behaved in an offensive manner to the inspector and the police officers with him and ordered them to leave the premises,” the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario stated.

The license suspension starts at 11am on Sunday, January 5th and runs until Friday January 10th at 2am.
