Nobody cut footloose!
Popular Hamptons spot Ruschmeyer’s has lost its temporary liquor license for breaking stipulations laid out by the SLA including the rule, “no dancing.”
The Montauk location was granted the temp license in May with a number of rules surrounding how the place would be run due to issues the town of East Hampton, N.Y., had there last year.
A representative for the SLA tells Page Six they “received a referral from the East Hampton Police Department that on June 10th, an officer responding to an unruly patron at Ruschmeyer’s documented patrons dancing in two separate areas inside the establishment, in violation of their approved temporary retail permit.”
Additionally, one of the stipulations for the venue, which is now supposed to be operating “strictly as a restaurant,” was that they could have “background recorded music only (for example, no DJ’s).”
But the SLA tells us they “also discovered advertising of DJ events on social media sites.”
And so like the hoedown-hating preacher dad in the Kevin Bacon classic, the SLA canceled their temporary permit on June 13.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean the party is over. We’re told a full liquor license for the business is currently pending.
Other stipulations included that the space has seven security guards every night and would close at 1 a.m.
Ruschmeyer’s could not be reached for comment.
Last year the spot, which has been a draw for a rowdy, 20-something crowd, made headlines when “Call Her Daddy” podcaster Alex Cooper slammed them for kicking her out after she had paid a bouncer to let her and some pals inside.
“I am f–king pissed” she said on her show, explaining they were booted because they didn’t have wristbands.
“In this moment I felt slighted, I felt wronged … There are six of us, standing in the pouring rain with no f–king dignity left and no wristbands,” she said.
Everything ended up being fine when she met the owner later. “The Ruschmeyer’s guy was so nice; such a nice dude,” she said. “Overall, great vibes.”
