A well-known Los Angeles bar rented a meeting place-allegedly for first responders, who worked tirelessly during the coronavirus pandemic-and seemed to ignore social distancing standards.
The owner of the Sassafras Saloon on the famous Vine Street between Hollywood and Santa Monica Boulevard said that after the controversial celebrations, they will no longer rent space for private parties.
The owner said that the premise for renting this bar is that the guests are outside and a safe distance between them.

“Since this is a personal reservation, the recommendation to us is that we can consider it to meet all criteria, including residents living on two terraces, and therefore can do so. We do our best to provide our services. Staff And guests have ample outdoor space and fully comply with current safety precautions and expectations of society.”
However, the progressive group Knock LA appears to support the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department of funding. The organization reports that maskless revellers enjoy loud music, drinking and dancing in the Sassafras Saloon.
The organization reported that the party was brought to the police department, although both law enforcement agencies and lawyer managers stated that there was no immediate evidence that a representative was involved.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement: “The person identified in the video is not an employee of the Sheriff’s Department. The incident was not presided over by LASD.” An investigation has been launched.
The owner of the bar admitted that most of the activities were conducted indoors that violated state health regulations.
In 1933, the team said: “Unfortunately, many guests did not comply with the regulations. We clearly did not tolerate such behavior and had no intention of agreeing to other charitable or other private activities before the state allowed it.”
