The Ultra Light Club, a well-known downtown dance club on Crescent has lost its liquor license for a 20-day period due to a long list of infractions over the years that mainly centre around over-aggressive bouncers.
The club has a liquor license at 2020 Crescent under the name Entertainment Emporium inc. since June 2, 1997. It's called Club Extreme but somehow changed its name without liquor board permission under owner Truong Nguyen Huu.
These are the incidents brought up in the recent RACJ hearings, there were surely others, as this list ends abruptly, so we don't know what the situation has been since these were racked up.
