Six Henderson restaurants and bars were caught selling alcohol to minors over Labor Day weekend in a Henderson Police underage alcohol compliance check.
Henderson Police checked 65 bars and restaurants throughout the city overnight Saturday to prevent minors from buying alcohol. One restaurant failed for the first time, and five bars and restaurants failed for the second time after a compliance check in April, Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul said.
The repeat offenders include Black Mountain Grill on Eastern Avenue, Eldorado Casino and Gold Mine Tavern on Water Street, PT’s Gold on Bicentennial Parkway, and Sunset and Vines on Costa di Lago. Buffalo Wild Wings on Mall Ring Circle failed the check for the first time.
Those caught selling alcohol to a minor face a maximum penalty of six months in jail, and/or a $1,000 fine. The owners or managers of businesses that failed a second or third time can be issued a citation and lose their business license, Paul said.
