Delilah loses its liquor license
Following a raid earlier this week at “Hell Square” lounge Delilah, the State Liquor Authority has suspended the problematic bar’s liquor license, the Daily News reports. The year-old restaurant received 63 violations related to recent violence and rowdy crowds, Bowery Boogie reported last week, after three men got into a knife fight outside the lounge on New Year’s Eve. Delilah is partially owned by Paul Seres, the same guy who owns other nearby problem bar The DL, and the same guy who reportedly applied to head up the city’s newly created Office of Nightlife.
