Reports out of China have said that the newly opened Jesters Bar in China’s southern Hainan island, part of the Mangrove Tree Resort World in Sanya Bay, has been closed by local authorities after only two days in operation
The source only reported the newly opened bar Monday, but according to reports from the the deputy director of the Sanya Culture and Sports Bureau on the island, they have closed the bar/casino that offered customers casino style gambling BUT for prizes not cash. In fact there was no cash involved by customers or the operators.
However Chen Guangfa from the Bureau said ”We have shut the entertainment bar,” and continued “We are investigating it and so far, it looks like they have violated their operating regulations.”
“When we approved it, the regulations and the certificate said its operations would be entertainment in nature, but inside the bar there are some games and they’ve gone beyond the scope of the regulations, so we closed it down.”
At this time it is still unclear if and how the owners of Jesters Bar have violated their certificate to operate.
