Supes OK Lush Lounge relocation

For nine years Lush Lounge has operated along Polk and Post streets but were forced to relocate after “they recently experienced a significant lease rate increase,” according to Police Department Inspector David Falzon. Falzon’s duties include reviewing liquor license transfer applications and recommended to the Board of Supervisors whether to approve the transfer or not as well as adding conditions on to the approval.

The Board of Supervisors City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee unanimously approved Lush Lounger’s liquor license transfer application so it could reopen at 1221 Polk Street, between Bush and Sutter streets.

The business was praised by Board of Supervisors President David Chiu. “The Lush Lounge from my perspective has really been a model entertainment venue on Polk Street,” Chiu said. “The management of the Lush Lounge has been extremely responsible and very active in helping to improve the quality of life in the Polk Street neighborhood, which has quite a bit of crime and a number of neighborhood issues.”

The transfer requires approval by the full board, which will vote next Tuesday on the application.
