Lawndale ABC Inspections


On April 2, 2013, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, South Los Angeles Station/Lawndale Service Center deputies in conjunction with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and the City of Lawndale conducted inspections at three local businesses in the city of Lawndale.

The mission of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is to administer the provisions of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act in a manner that fosters and protects the health, safety, welfare, and economic well being of the people of the State.

The three locations that were inspected were Big John's Bar, Benny's 19th Hole, and Velia's Mayfair Sports Bar and Grill. All three locations were issued warnings for a variety of minor Alcoholic Beverage Control violations. One location was discarding empty bottles and cans outside the bar. The team will return in the near future to ensure that all violations have been corrected.
