City probes Halloween party put on by Bootsy Bellows

The City Attorney’s Office confirmed Tuesday that it has launched an investigation into a Halloween party held at the Crystal Palace building.

“Issues have been raised and we’re attempting to address them,” City Attorney Jim True said.

On Oct. 31, Aspen nightclub Bootsy Bellows hosted a party at the Crystal Palace building on East Hyman Avenue.

A source knowledgeable of the investigation said Bootsy Bellows supplied liquor from its East Hopkins Avenue location to the Crystal Palace party.

True declined to confirm that is the focus of the investigation, but he said that alcohol cannot be moved from one licensed premises to another.

The city also declined to say whether Bootsy Bellows secured a license to serve booze at the Crystal Palace party.

“We will respond once the investigation is complete,” Assistant City Attorney Deborah Quinn said in an email.

Andrew Sadler, who runs Bootsy Bellows, did not respond to a message seeking comment.
