City Attorney Calls The Country Club A Public Nuisance

Bywater's longstanding clothing-optional pool house/restaurant/bar and drag brunch institution The Country Club has been targeted as violating booze permits/being a public nuisance by city attorneys, WWL-TV reports, and now must go in front of the Alcohol Beverage Control Board for a hearing. This all comes after ongoing theft, an alleged rape, and more sexual/alcohol related issues have flared up over the past year, in particular, this summer.

Despite the charges, the Bywater Neighborhood Association is in support of the Country Club with chairman John Guarnieri defending the business as reputable and stating: "They were one of the first establishments open in the neighborhood and have always been very cooperative. We hold a lot of neighborhood events at the Country Club and we've never heard any complaints."
