COUNCIL PRESIDENT HAMILTON
After a request from COMMON COUNCIL PRESIDENT ASHANTI HAMILTON, the
operators of the ONYX SOCIAL CLUB & RESTAURANT voluntarily surrendered
their alcohol and entertainment licenses yesterday (Monday, October 24).
The club, located at 3120 W. Villard Ave. (in Alderman Hamilton’s 1st
District), was licensed by the City of Milwaukee to serve food, to serve
alcohol, and to provide entertainment.
“Onyx has some challenges and those challenges have been a problem for
residents living nearby and for patrons,” President Hamilton said.
“Licenses to operate an establishment in the City of Milwaukee are a
privilege, and my goal is to maintain balance and cohesiveness by
ensuring that businesses abide by very clear standards of safety,
health, and order in the neighborhood,” he said.
