Eagles Club nears end of liquor suspension

The sign on the door at the Eagles Club in downtown Glenwood Springs explains that the club's liquor license is currently under suspension

The Eagles Club on Seventh Street in Glenwood Springs is serving the tail end of a 32-day liquor license suspension that began in January, after reportedly serving to non-members.

According to the Colorado Department of Revenue Liquor Enforcement Division, the establishment allegedly served a beer to a non-member in June of 2014.

Because the club was already under an October 2013 agreement related to a similar incident that held its liquor license in abeyance for one year, follow-up action was necessary, according to state officials.

The agreement reached in December called for separate five- and 16-day suspensions in January, and another 10-day suspension that began Feb. 6 and ends after Sunday, according to documents provided by the state.

“It’s not our intention to shut a business down in these situations, so we do try to work with them,” Department of Revenue spokeswoman Daria Serna said. “That way they can continue to have revenues during a portion of that time.”

Under the agreement, the Eagles Club has also agreed to seek a change in its license classification within nine months, from a club license to a tavern license, according to the state agreement.
