FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Sky Hookah Lounge, the source of repeated complaints from neighbors about noise and drug and criminal activity around the business, is no more, according to Fairfield police.
The King’s Highway East lounge closed within the last four or five weeks, said Lt. Robert Kalamaras, the department’s spokesperson.
“The Fairfield Police Department has seen a marked reduction in calls for service related to quality of life issues in that neighborhood since the business has closed,” Kalamaras said.
He said the lounge closed as a result of a civil eviction process initiated by the landlord, who has been identified as Tom Brennan.
Earlier this year Fairfield police stepped up patrols in the area around the hookah lounge, which had seen an uptick in narcotics and criminal activity.
The site, 689 Kings Highway East, no longer has signs for the lounge and did not appear to be open on Wednesday afternoon.
