The 6e Avenue Bar et Grill in Rivière-des-Prairies has seen its liquor licence suspended for two months.

The 60-day suspension is part of an agreement reached between the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux (RACJ) and the new owner of the 6e avenue Bar et Grill on Maurice Duplessis Blvd.

As part of the agreement, the new owner agreed to not allow Marco Pizzi, 52, and four members of his family to enter the premises. Police sources have described Pizzi as a man who appears to have grown in influence among the Montreal Mafia over the past decade.

The agreement reached with the new owner is detailed in a decision made on April 14 by the RACJ to suspend the bar’s liquor licence despite the change in ownership.

It describes how the previous owner was summoned to appear before the board since November 2019 on a request from the Montreal police.
