St. Charles bars band together for solutions
St. Charles Tavern Association responds to city's, police's bar concerns
ST. CHARLES – Steve Baginski, owner of The Beehive Tavern & Grille, understands the value small changes can have in addressing the St. Charles City Council’s concerns about the downtown nightlife.
He and most other downtown bar owners have banded together in recent months to do what they can to reduce over-serving and fights. Acting as the St. Charles Tavern Association, the bar owners have begun using hand stamps to track patrons’ bar-hopping; they have created a banned list for those patrons involved in fights, illegal activity or other disruptive behavior; and, among other actions, they’ve started to lock their doors at the 1:20 a.m. last call.
Although the latter change is small, Baginski said, it prevents the “last-call bar hop.”
