El Paso County Commissioners will decide Thursday whether to suspend PT’s Showclub’s liquor license for more than 15 days or permanently yank it.
The gentleman’s club, owned by the publicly traded VCG Holdings, is facing numerous allegations of liquor license violations, some that undercover police detectives said they observed in December and some in March.
The board of county commissioners is the licensing authority over bars, liquor stores and other outlets that serve alcoholic beverages in unincorporated areas of the county. Metro Narcotics, Vice and Intelligence, a regional drug enforcement agency, conducts periodic undercover checks of the businesses.
The PT’s hearing was postponed from the April 14 commissioners’ meeting because of the additional alleged violations noted in March. Thursday’s hearing will address all of the issues, which include serving visibly intoxicated patrons, dancers asking patrons to buy them drinks and others.
The meeting starts at 9 a.m. at Pikes Peak Regional Development Center, 2880 International Circle.
