Shuttered: Waterfront Restaurant & Concert Theater

From Chuck Colby, CEO/Managing Director of The Waterfront Restaurant & Concert Theater and The Organic Panificio Cafe:

On Thursday, September 16th the County of Los Angeles was successful in obtaining a restraining order to terminate all live music and entertainment at the venue. This order goes into effect shortly. Accordingly, we are ceasing our entertainment operations immediately consistent with the judge’s order. In connection with this we will be shutting down the restaurant as well.

Despite having the proper licenses, and fighting numerous court battles, hearings, government agencies, and all of the challenges of the current economic situation, the entity as a whole had finally started to make money and become profitable. However, as a direct result of a direct competitor and neighboring resident and his persistent badgering of the County. The County of LA in its infinite wisdom has taken this action. A shining example of our Government at work yet once again to ‘create jobs’ and stimulate the economy… So 80 plus people are out of work, in addition to the 50-150 musicians, backline people, stage hands, sound engineers, bookers, and others who we employ each week.

Obviously, I am very disappointed with the judge’s ruling. I want to thank all of you who supported the waterfront and what we were trying to do.
