SAN BRUNO — The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control on Friday ordered the indefinite suspension of Paper Moon, a karaoke bar in San Bruno that police said attracted too many service calls, an official said.
Beverage control posted a suspension notice at Paper Moon at 448 San Mateo Ave. after filing an accusation that the club created problems for law enforcement and operated “in a disorderly fashion,” according to Supervising Agent Richard Seghieri.
According to Seghieri, San Bruno police complained the bar overburdened the department with an abnormally high number of calls for police services.
The business’ liquor license has been revoked but beverage control is giving the holder of Paper Moon’s license up to one year to transfer it to a new owner at a different location, Seghieri reported.
Representatives of Paper Moon could not be reached Saturday.
From customer comments on the bar’s Yelp page, Paper Moon was described as a “hostess bar” catering to Asian-American men and had a karaoke stage, private karaoke rooms, liquor and food selections.
