Albany Zoning Board looking at nuisance complaint against bar shut down by city

ALBANY – The Albany Zoning Board of Appeals is reviewing the mayor’s complaint about Cafe Hollywood.

Mayor Kathy Sheehan calls the Lark Street bar a public nuisance.

It was forced to shut down earlier this week by the city.

They have scheduled a public hearing on August 11.

The mayor says the business appears to have a connection to a shooting in the city last week where one person died.

The owner of Cafe Hollywood disputes that claim.
