Mojo’s, a popular Main Street bar near the University at Buffalo’s South Campus was shut down Friday by the State Liquor Authority for alleged sales of alcohol to minors.
Dennis Rosen, chair of the State Liquor Authority, an April 10 undercover check led to the bar’s latest problem.
The SLA, state police and Buffalo police sent three underage undercover agents into the bar at 3148 Main St. They were admitted despite presenting driver’s licenses that showed they were under 21 and served by a bartender who did not ask for identification, Rosen said.
Rosen said the SLA voted Friday to charged with bar with three violations for selling to a minor and failure to provide adequate supervision of employees.
The bar has two pending cases before the SLA for earlier sales to minors with a hearing in those cases scheduled for June 5.
Spokesmen for 4D Associates Inc., which operates the bar, could not be reached to comment.
“Cracking down on underage sales is a priority and the SLA will not hesitate in taking emergency action against licensees that blatantly and repeatedly sell to minors,” Rosen said. “We will continue to work with our partners in law enforcement across the state to hold licensees accountable,” he stressed.
