Roswell suspends restaurant’s alcohol license

The Roswell City Council has approved a negotiated, 60-day suspension of the alcohol license of a local restaurant after an undercover law enforcement officer allegedly was served an alcoholic beverage well after permitted hours.

The Cancun Bar & Grill, 10479 Alpharetta St., was cited after an officer purchased a drink at about 3:30 a.m. May 11, “which is beyond the 2 a.m. time allowed for the sale and service of alcoholic beverages by consumption on the premises license,” according to the city attorney’s report to the council.

The council held a public hearing Nov. 13 to revoke or suspend the Cancun alcohol license held by Kata Lina Clavijo, and voted to accept the negotiated penalty of a 60-day license suspension, Nov. 14 to Jan. 12, according to council minutes.

“There will be an additional period of 26 days with no alcohol sales because the current licensee no longer works at Cancun, and the deferred application of the owner cannot be heard until the Alcoholic Beverage Licensing Board hearing of Feb. 7, 2019,” the minutes state.

“Mayor and council also required that all alcohol be removed from the premises during the period of the suspension.”
