Elmer’s Place, a bar popular among Central Connecticut State University students, has had its liquor license suspended and has been fined $5,000.

The bar on East Street was imposed for the violation of four statutes or regulations, including sale to minors and minors in barroom, according to a public document from the State of Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection.

The Liquor Control Commission has suspended Elmer’s Place’s liquor permit from June 30 to July 4, according to the document.

The fine has already been paid, state officials say.

The Communications Director of the Department of Consumer Protection, Kaitlyn Krasselt, said the five-day suspension is the result of a compromise.

“The acceptance of the offer constituted a waiver of their right to a hearing before the Liquor Control Commission on the pending charges which alleged violations of various statutes and regulations,” Krasselt said.

“As with all of our licenses, there is an expectation that anyone given the privilege of holding a liquor permit adhere to the laws and regulations of our state, which are in place to protect public health and safety,” Krasselt said.
