Council to hold second hearing on Blitz Ultra Lounge's alcohol license

Alhambra City Council will hold a second hearing Wednesday night regarding Blitz Ultra Lounge's alcohol license revocation. The bar and nightclub on Main and 2nd streets was temporarily closed after the Alhambra Planning Commission discovered Blitz staff had served alcohol to underage patrons several times and failed to improve security measures.

Blitz owner Christopher Jefferson said ​during Monday's council meeting that he has found another owner for his business and the city should renew the alcohol license based on the new management. However, a man named David Leon also introduced himself as the new owner during the initial May 29 hearing. Mayor Steven Placido questioned whether the transfer of the business was legitimate. Blitz attorney Roger Diamond was unable to attend the first hearing due to back surgery and filed a request for continuance. 

The second hearing will be held Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, 111 S. First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801.
