Celeb Hotspots Cited for Not Serving Food: Shocking!

At Voyeur, strippers used the kitchen as a dressing room. At SBE-owned Industry, a table for the night costs $2,000, but don't expect to eat. At Hyde Lounge, another SBE hotspot, ask a bartender for food and you'll be told they don't serve any. That's according to an undercover investigation by NBC Los Angeles of several local nightclubs who secured their state liquor licenses by posing as restaurants but serve little to no food. Now, the ABC (California's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control) is cracking down. No, not for having bad taste or a fostering a faux air of exclusivity with absurdly inflated prices, but for flouting state law.

ABC spokesman John Carr tells our sister blog The Informer some of the details surrounding the citations including one for alleged "lewd conduct" at Voyeur and another for an alleged lack of utensils at Industry. Just sip that overpriced champagne from your date's stiletto.
