The Mayor's Office of Consumer Affairs and Licensing yesterday took away the entertainment license for Guira y Tambora, 4014 Washington St. after another hearing over complaints about noise and unruly patrons.
At a hearing yesterday, BPD Sgt. Det. Robert Mulvey testified that, in response to a 911 call, he and his partner arrived at the restaurant shortly before 11 p.m. to find "loud music emanating from the establishment." Inside, they found a DJ in a back room, even though the restaurant did not have a license for a DJ.
A nearby resident recited her and other residents' complaints about repeated loud music and unruly patrons lingering outside at closing time. An aide to City Councilor Tim McCarthy (Roslindale, Hyde Park, Mattapan) testified his office has received numerous complaints as well.
Last October, owner Felipe Duran, who lives just three blocks away, pledged to take steps to curb noise, including paying for installation of sound-resistant windows and a new entrance vestibule.
But in her decision, licensing head Christine Pulgini said enough's enough and ordered the restaurant to end both live and recorded music immediately.
