Brisbane bar’s liquor license suspended for illegal gambling
July 05, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A Brisbane bar had its liquor license suspended Thursday after illegal gambling was discovered on the premises during an investigation, according to the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

ABC agents and local law enforcement visiting the Historic 23 Club at 23 Visitacion Avenue saw customers gambling online using computers owned by the bar, according to ABC officials.

Customers bought Internet time from the “Internet café” on site and then played gambling-themed games and placed bets using credits based on the amount they spent.

The computers qualify as illegal “slot machines or devices,” ABC officials said.

The bar’s license has been suspended for 30 days.
