ABC Will Pull Downtown Pub’s Alcohol License After Numerous Complaints

Shameless O’Leery’s Irish Pub on California Street in Downtown Redding has received a 60-day suspension from the State Alcohol Beverage Control after numerous complaints filed by the community and the Redding Police Department. Between February 2021 and May of 2022 police responded to 125 calls for service including a shooting, multiple fights, vandalism, resisting or obstructing peace officers and others. The owner of the premises recently signed a settlement which includes the 60-day suspension as well as new operating conditions on the license which will require the presence of uniformed security guards during certain hours at the premises while also restricting live entertainment, and the hours in which the premises can serve alcoholic beverages. Additionally, if similar violations continue to occur at the premises, ABC has authority to revoke the license. The suspension goes into effect on August 22nd.
