Club K shut down for operating without live entertainment license
Club K, the small, eclectic space City Paper named Best New Venue in September’s Best Of Baltimore issue, was shut down for operating without a live entertainment license, general manager Michael Young confirmed.
Young said he had “full faith” the space would be up and running again by mid-November after going through the licensing process. He did not, however, have specifics about how the space would go about getting licensed and referred all questions to Club K’s owner.
Kenneth Kirby, listed as the owner of the liquor license, said he is going through all the formalities but wouldn’t elaborate much further.
On its Facebook page, Club K posted a note saying it would start a petition to keep the building as a live music venue and that it was looking for places to move shows they’ve already booked. Bar and food service will continue as usual, said Young.
The liquor board has not yet responded to City Paper‘s request for information about the situation.
