They’re Back!! 2414 Paula Street requests a new AEP


2414 Paula Street

Luc Lounge looking to reopen

New look at 2414 Paula Street

The club formally opened as Luc Lounge at 2414 Paula Street is attempting to reopen under another name. In August of 2016 the club faced nearly $10,000 in fines for noise violations (nearly 30 citations) and a $500 a day fine from the city for not meeting parking requirements for their business. This was finally enough for the club operators to surrender their Amplified Entertainment Permit and close their doors. Luc Lounge was famous for two separate raids by the ALE where they lost their ABC permit and had several people arrested on various charges including weapons charges. They then began operation as an after hours club with go go dancing and loud music until 6am in the morning.

Just over 90 days later the club is trying to reopen. A neighboring club is said to be leasing parking spaces for their use in order to circumvent the parking requirement. Neighbors who fought for over a year with the club are out raged that city officials did not follow through with the penalties racked up by Luc Lounge that would suspend the AEP for a 12 month period.

Records show an application for the AEP was processed by the city on November 22nd.

Please call or email Mrs. Leapley with the following message:

Mrs. Leapley,

It has come to my attention that a club is attempting to open at 2414 Paula Street. I ask that you please proceed filing for the 12 month suspension of the AEP for this address per RCC 2014-349. This penalty is justified for the club and building owner, as they spent over a year terrorizing the neighbors with loud noise and fighting the city, police, and residents request for compromise. It took just over 90 days for the club to file for another AEP after racking up nearly $10,000 in noise voilation fines and facing a $500 a day fine by zoning enforcement. Please do not set the precedent that these penalties can be washed away after three short months. I look forward to your update on this matter.

Please call or email Mr. Pearce with the following message:

Mr. Pearce,

It has come to my attention that a club is attempting to obtain an AEP at 2414 Paula Street. I ask that you request the City of Raleigh to please deny this request as your office previously cited this club for zoning issues. It seems that these issues are not being taken into account when a permit request is filed. It is also possible that this address has a 12 month ban on an AEP for the previous noise violations per RCC 2014-349. I look forward to your update on this matter.
