Two other Ohio bars were cited and one was criminally charged for the following violations:

MMD Entertainment LLC., known as Sky Mediterranean, Parma Heights, received a citation for improper conduct – disorderly activity, after-hours sale – Rule 80 and after-hours consumption – Rule 80. Just before midnight, agents found the establishment was heavily occupied with widespread alcoholic beverage consumption and continued beverage sales. There were approximately 150 patrons inside, with egregious violations of health orders. Agents observed little to no social distancing or physical barriers in place as patrons stood and walked freely while consuming alcoholic beverages. Due to a large number of patrons inside, agents were unable to move about the premise without direct physical contact. The liquor permit was cited on October 31 for similar violations.

Patrons gathered closely on the dance floor and in the seating areas.

In addition to the citations issued at the above liquor permits, OIU Agents, Cleveland Division of police and fire, and the Cleveland Department of Public Health, went to SED Group Inc., known as V Lounge, Cleveland and observed numerous health order violations. This location was found to be operating without a liquor permit, therefore a criminal charge of illegal sales will be presented to the Cleveland Municipal Prosecutor’s Office.
