The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is moving this morning to pull the Greek Cusina’s license. The bar, at 4th and Washington, has a history of public safety problems, according to the OLCC. Here’s two examples, from a lawsuit filed last year alleging vicious security, to the city fining the owner for excessive noise.

The OLCC’s proposed cancellation comes as the result of “a history of serious and persistent problems including public drunkenness, fights, altercations, harassment, excessive noise and public urination,” says the OLCC’s spokeswoman, Christie Scott.
“Allowing fights and illegal activity to take place is not being a responsible business owner or neighbor,” says Janice Kindrick, OLCC Regional Enforcement Manager. “Despite our efforts to work with the licensee, they haven’t shown us that they’re able to adequately control the business.”
The Greek’s owner, Ted Papas, says he intends to defend against the allegations.
“They are just allegations,” he says.
