Coeur d'Alene Resort liquor license suspended 5 days

The Spokesman-ReviewJanuary 3, 2014 

Most Coeur d’Alene Resort bars and restaurants will be closed Friday through Tuesday because of an Idaho liquor law violation.

The five-day suspension of the resort’s liquor license stems from an Idaho State Police compliance operation last April. A bartender at Splash, a resort sports bar, served a minor working with the ISP’s Alcohol Beverage Control unit.

The suspension applies to resort venues that serve alcohol, including Beverly’s Restaurant, Whispers Lounge, Dockside Restaurant, Tito’s Italian Grill and the convention center. The Dockside will remain open but will not serve alcohol.

The resort has an excellent alcohol compliance record and is one of the best employers in the state for training servers, said Lt. Russ Wheatley of the state police.

“These guys have done nothing but their very, very best on ensuring these things don’t occur,” Wheatley said. “They take this very seriously in their responsibility.”
