State accuses WeHo nightclub Micky’s of lewd conduct violations

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Micky’s nightclub, the popular Boystown gay bar known for its go-go dancing events, is under state investigation for 14 counts of lewd conduct and two counts of giving away alcoholic beverages, according to the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC).

For now, ABC has only filed accusations against Micky’s, which, after being offered a suspension as penalty instead chose to have a hearing to make its case. A date has not yet been set for that hearing.

Micky’s management did not return calls and e-mails requesting comment, and ABC officials would not elaborate on details of the counts because they are still open cases. However, according to Boystown sources, the lewd conduct accusations have to do with contact between bar patrons and the go-go dancers, as well as go-go dancer “over-exposure.”

“Our culture here is a little different than a lot of places,” said Eleven Nightclub owner Richard Grossi. “I figure it’s something all the clubs are little bit apprehensive about. Is something coming down the line for all of us?”
