DRAIN, Ore. -- The owner of the Top of the Bowl strip club has reached an agreement with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

In early October, OLCC suspended the bar’s liquor license for violating social distancing and mask requirements.

Owner Rik Marin said they agreed to a 50-day suspension, which starts on Nov. 19. He said he plans to shut the bar down during that time in order to save money.

"We were staying open so the girls had somewhere to work,” he said. “But we're selling $70 worth of juice, red bull and Coca-Cola, as opposed to $1,000 in alcohol.”

Even though the suspension doesn’t start for a few weeks, Marin said he plans to close the bar after Halloween weekend.

He said they’re planning to reopen on Jan. 8 with a full bar and stricter mask requirements.

“We’re going to be more diligent about the masks,” Marin said. “You know, when people come in we’re going to write little tablets that say group of seven, group of nine, group of 10.”
