A bar/restaurant located on the corner of 48th Street and Barnett Avenue has come under fire by local residents.
Several residents have complained about noise coming from the 47-15 Barnett Avenue establishment, while others allege that it has been operating well past 4 am (after hours).
Community Board 2 Chair Pat O’Brien said the board has fielded more than six complaints regarding the establishment in recent months.
Furthermore, the operators of the bar/restaurant—called Baru–have failed to show up at several board meetings in recent months to discuss the renewal of their liquor license, according to board records.
Emilo Rubio opened Baru in 2012 as a Colombian restaurant.
