NINE ESTABLISHMENTS have been shut down by the Iloilo City government for violations of Executive Order (EO) No. 46, which regulates bars and other leisure spots. Mayor Jerry P. Treñas issued the closure order on Tuesday based on the recommendation of the implementing team composed of different departments and task forces. The nine establishments are: Camp Jefferson Disco Pub, Angel A Resto, Sinukad GP Seafood Restaurant, Bull & Barrel Gastro Pub, HQ Beercade, Floyd’s Famous BBQ, Paraiso After 5 Disco Cafe and Restaurant Bar, Project Ex Sports Bar and Resto, and Juan’s Martha Foods Corporation. EO 46, which repealed a 2017 order that set a 2 a.m. curfew for nightspots, contains guidelines on security as well as the strict implementation of the city’s no-smoking ordinance and prohibition of serving alcoholic drinks to minors. The curfew was lifted after establishments promised to comply with policies to avoid violent incidents that prompted the restriction two years ago. The closed establishments are required to secure a clearance from the Business Permit and Licensing Office before they can resume operations. — Emme Rose S. Santiagudo
