A male employee of the House of Blue was fired after he was discovered having sex with a female patron in a second-floor men's room in November, the venue's manager told the Boston Licensing Board today.
Boston Police initially investigated the incident as a possible rape, but a detective from the BPD sexual-assault unit told the board evidence showed the encounter was consensual.
Dennis Quilty, the House of Blues' attorney, said the incident early on Nov. 17, was first reported to House of Blues security staff by another patron. He said bouncers immediately went into the men's room, where "they discovered two pairs of legs in a stall" and told the two people to get out. The woman, he said, then paid her bar tab and left with a friend.
Qulity said that as a result of the incident, the venue is adding cameras to the hallway outside its restrooms.
