Kings Cross licensed venue incurs second strike for supplying alcohol to a minor

Kings Cross licensed venue Dreamgirls has incurred a second strike under the Three Strikes disciplinary scheme for supplying alcohol to a minor.

At 1am on 27 July 2014, a 16-year-old youth was allowed into the venue without being asked for ID and was allowed to consume alcohol, resulting in an offence of supplying alcohol to a minor on a licensed premises. The venue also breached a licence condition by not complying with ID scanning requirements.

On 25 August 2014, a further offence of failing to comply with a licence condition occurred when the venue was ordered by Police to provide CCTV footage but coverage of the area where the minor was sitting was missing. The venue is required to have CCTV coverage of all publicly accessible areas.

The Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing has imposed a second strike on Dreamgirls for the 27 July offence. OLGR also referred the 25 August offence to the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority for its consideration of a possible third strike.

Third strikes can result in licence suspension for up to 12 months, licence cancellation and a moratorium on a new liquor licence being granted for the same business operators at the venue for up to 12 months, and/or disqualification of a licensee for any period of time.
