BALTIMORE — Due to some COVID-19 related violations, several restaurants and bars in Baltimore City will face the Liquor Board in a virtual hearing on Thursday at 11 a.m.

These bars are Kisling's Tavern, Abbey Burger Bistro, O'Donnell's Pub and Grille and Charro Negro Bar and Grill. There was originally five, but one of the businesses, The Manor, was taken off the list and, according to their website and Facebook page, they are temporarily closed.

However, in addition to the establishments above, there's also a handful of other businesses who have to go before the board later in August. These include Restaurante El Salvador, Special P's Bar and Lounge, Shipyard Pub, Angie's Seafood and Lust.

In the documents for both hearings, the violations are listed as illegal conduct and general welfare. They say that officers were doing business checks and found that these places were not in compliance with the governor's order at the time. Apparently, customers were inside drinking when they were only supposed to be open for carryout or pick-up.

Most of these violations are listed from back in March, when the shut down first began.
