Alcohol served at Lincoln nightclub investigated

Alcohol questioned: Lincolnshire Trading Standards are investigating a complaint about the alcohol being served at a Lincoln nightclub.

Lincolnshire Trading Standards have confirmed that they are investigating a complaint about the alcohol served by the operators of the Tokyo nightclub on Silver Street in Lincoln.

The consumer rights service is looking into allegations that a representative of the owner was seen topping up premium branded spirit bottles with cheaper spirits.

The allegation was reported by bar staff at the venue to Lincolnshire County Council’s Trading Standards team on June 2.

The lease of the business was taken over from Tokyo Industries Limited by local man Darren Smith in October 2013 and the nightclub is currently managed by Diva Leisure Limited.

Darren Smith did not reply to a request for comment from The Lincolnite.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire Trading Standards said: “We can confirm that we have received a complaint about the alcohol being served in a night club on Silver Street, and we are looking into the matter.”

Tokyo Lincoln has not been open for trade since the complaint was reported.
