The Green Room is closed (again!)
The Green Room has closed its doors again, following a brief relaunch last weekend. Although I've yet to get in contact with Jessie Tong, the individual who claims to be the establishment's new owner, the reason for this latest closure seems pretty straightforward: the restaurant was operating without a license. Inquiries made with Municipal Licensing and Standards reveal that while the Green Room did recently apply for a new license, that application was refused based on what ML&S representative Bruce Hawkins calls "concerns stemming from City of Toronto investigations."
Should the latest version of the once popular Annex hangout hope to operate again, ownership "has until March 24th, 2011 to request a hearing before the Toronto Licensing Tribunal." So the saga continues. For more on what we know about the current status of the Green Room, check out our freshly updated article Inside the new Green Room.
