ABC Board Suspends Heritage India/The Zanzibar’s Liquor License

Wednesday, January 7, 2015
Suspension is the result of violence at the establishment on January 3.

(Washington, DC) The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board (Board) suspended Heritage India/The Zanzibar’s liquor license today as the result of an incident that occurred at the establishment on Saturday, January 3 where a patron was stabbed.

The Board found that the establishment—located at 1901 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW—presents an imminent danger to the health and safety of the public. As a result of the Board’s decision, Heritage India/The Zanzibar is prohibited from selling and serving alcoholic beverages. The Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) provided the establishment with a formal notice this evening informing them of the suspension.

The Board made its decision after reviewing a thorough investigation conducted by ABRA of the incident. Heritage India/The Zanzibar has remained closed since 6 pm on Saturday, January 3 under the authority of Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy L. Lanier.

The grounds for the suspension can be reviewed in the Notice of Summary Suspension available on ABRA’s website.
