what really happened at Next Door

July 4th, 2008 · 8 Comments

it took two seconds of actual research. no “oooo they got shut down by the liquor commission” rumor mongering.

Anyway, here’s the real deal from Kawehi Haug:

•A report issued June 6 by the Liquor Commission stated that Next Door has been put on probation. Liquor Commission administrator Dewey Kim said that the club is indeed having sound problems — and neighbor problems. Kim said there have been, and continue to be, complaints about the club’s noise level, prompting the probation. During the probation period of six months, commission officials will make routine visits to the club to monitor its sound levels. He said the commission did not order the club to close, and that Next Door has been making an effort to solve its sound problems by hiring a sound engineer and making improvements to the air conditioning system, which helps to buffer the sound.

•At 3:15 Thursday, Next Door issued an official statement saying that it will be closed until August 2 for renovation.

The statement said:

The venue will be working on some improvements including adding more air conditioning, re-doing interior decoration, and re-organizing and improving the sound system.

As we approach our 3rd anniversary, we want to improve the quality in ambiance, sound, and our entertainment … All in-house promotions including Acid Wash Wednesday, Chinatown Sessions, and Chinatown Social Club will be postponed until August. These events will NOT be moved to another venue.

Get well soon, Next Door. not sure what the hell i’m going to do without you.
