City Council weighs revoking Blitz Ultra Lounge's alcohol license

Alhambra City Council held a special meeting Wednesday to discuss revoking Blitz Ultra Lounge's alcohol license. The lounge and dance club on Main and 1st streets was temporarily closed after the Alhambra Planning Commission determined that it allowed underage patrons to enter the establishment and failed to improve security measures for its customers.

Blitz attorney Roger Diamond was unable to attend due to back surgery, but David Leon argued that the business is under transformation. Leon addressed the council during the meeting and said he bought the business from the previous owner, Christopher Jefferson, on May 28. Leon also presented a 10-point plan on how to meet the city’s requirements. Mayor Steven Placido was not convinced that the transfer of the business was completed and requested that Council reschedule the meeting to June 26.

There have been a total of 18 calls for police service at Blitz since June 2010, according to city staff, including two fights that resulted in bookings and one rape report. There have also been two incidents of underage drinking since 2012, the most notable on Jan. 5, 2013, when an underage patron was involved in a hit-and-run accident involving a pedestrian and vehicular assault on a police officer, culminating in an officer-involved shooting.
