Peace and prosperity followed by a year of construction noise to come? Come on BGT.

Now Indio's on the other hand... that place needs to clean the f up.


LOL... right, who could have possibly foreseen gentrification coming to that location!

That's bullshit. Just because a bar was there first doesn't give its owners and patrons free range to violate noise ordinances, ignore parking laws, fight and scream in the streets, leave broken glass all over the block, and so on. Anybody who has lived on that street can you tell you what a nightmare it was. Anybody claiming racism is doing so because they don't have any valid arguments. I'm happy for my old block.


I lived on the block for five years and outside of cop cars on a handful of occasions, it wasn't particularly worse than any other bar. Lucky 7's , two blocks away, is just as loud and has more people standing outside of it and it doesn't get the flack that Latin Lounge got.


It should, I feel bad for the people on that corner too.

As for the ongoing drama about the banner, well... it is well known in JC circles that lots of people had it in for Latin Lounge. People who *choose* to move next to a bar (or other commercial establishment) and then complain about the noise of said place get zero sympathy from me. The ones that take it a step further and actively seek to close the place are the worst, on my book.

this was the subject of a very lively discussion on BGT's facebook page (some of the most condemnatory posts seem to have been removed), but am surprised it hasn't hit jclist yet

as I was walking my dog last week on 2nd street, I saw a large professionally printed banner on the Latin Lounge building, took a picture of it but don't know how to upload it here. this is what it said:

"Peace and Prosperity Returns to the Village,
Latin Lounge closed!
Brought to you by BGT Enterprises"

clearly someone at BGT gave enough thought about this to spend money to have it printed up and hung, but not enough thought about how it was going to be look to a lot of people. Racist? Smug? Weird?

I only went into Latin Lounge a few times, and found it to be a fun, normal bar. Though I can understand not wanting to live next to any kind of bar, there were no celebratory banners posted when the Lamp Post across the street from Latin Lounge closed down. I was really shocked to see it.

BGT apologized after getting hammered on facebook and took the banner down.

Not sure what is going to replace the Latin Lounge, but probably a large apartment building, since that's what's becoming the norm in the Village.


Dude, next time some links and/or context would help. Not everybody is going to know what you are referring to, or understand what it being said/claimed.

Here is the FB page for BGT Enterprises:
