Margaret Walsh

A story we've been telling you about for some time about a downtown nightclub has developed even further today.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a judge ruled to revoke the liquor permit for Lure, now known as Amnesia, effectively closing the nightclub.

The future remains unclear for the nightclub formerly known as Lure.

As we reported last week, a group of residents is trying to collect enough signatures to get the club, which is currently operating as Amnesia, shuttered. Judge Margaret Walsh wanted to bring in a witness to clarify some signatures on the petitions.

The result? Still no clarity.

Updated after hearing:

  • Lure petitioners collected 133 signatures. 83 were ruled invalid by liquor control, leaving the 50 total.
  • Lure owners have been claiming some signatures were coerced.
  • Hearing was adjourned and rescheduled for Dec. 15 at 9:30 a.m. There is concern with the validity of a particular signature and judge wants the witness there live.

If anyone following the proceedings is interested, the ordinance governing protest petitions is 68536.
