Back Bar’s liquor license will be suspended from April 1st to May 1st and that the owners will enforce written rules stating that events will not allow smoking inside, drug use, guns or alcohol at the bar. If they would like to host a private event an application must be passed on to the Janesville Police Dept for screening.
