KC’s Timeout Lounge back open after health department closure

Evansville bar back open after it was closed by health department

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - KC’s Timeout Lounge opened at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

As 14 News reported last week, the bar was shut down for seven days after State Excise Police reported face covering and social distancing violations.

Management was required to submit a mitigation plan to the health department in order to reopen.

Operations manager Chad Brady tells us the inside will look the same, however they have moved tables around to better social distance.

Earlier this month, Buds Rockin’ Bar and Grill, under the same ownership, was also closed for COVID-19 safety violations.

”Just because somewhere is under the same ownership doesn’t mean there’s the same management, doesn’t mean they have the same floor plan, doesn’t mean they were designed to do the same exact kind of business,” said Brady. “It’s just a tough one. It’s hard to really say how you feel about it. I mean, we are going to do everything we can to follow the guidelines.”
