Roswell may suspend alcohol license for popular local bar

A “bar & grill” eatery in Roswell may soon just be a grill.

At its meeting on Monday, Roswell City Council could take the first steps to revoke or suspend the alcohol license of the Cancun Bar & Grill, LLC, a local restaurant.

An item on the city’s agenda calls for an approval to schedule a public hearing on whether the license will be revoked or suspended. At that hearing, the licensee can give an explanation as to why the license shouldn’t be revoked or suspended.

Kata Lina Clavijo holds the license for the Tex-Mex spot at 10479 Alpharetta St., which also doubles as a club in the late evening.

According to city documents, an employee of Cancun Bar & Grill broke the law and a city ordinance on May 11 when that person sold an alcoholic beverage to an underage and undercover law enforcement officer at 3:30 a.m.

The city ordinance forbids alcohol to be sold after 2 a.m. and, of course, the legal drinking age is 21.

If the resolution is approved Monday, then the city council will vote on June 23 to suspend or revoke the license.
