According to an SCHD spokesperson, each closure is due to multiple documented violations of requirements and provisions of Health Directive 16.

The closures are based on enforcement inspections conducted January 1-3.

The locations may petition to reopen by submitting plans for coming into compliance with the Health Directive. They will remain closed until they are approved to reopen by the Health Officer.

The businesses are:

  • VIBE LOUNGE & GRILL/TREP & GLOW POINT NIGHT-3141 New Horn Lake Rd.
  • ONE BLOCK NORTH- 645 Marble Avenue
  • BLOW HOOKA & CIGAR LOUNGE- 815 Exocet Drive
