Highgate shisha lounge closed down following reports of ongoing anti-social behaviour.

Emperor’s Shisha Lounge on Birchall Street in Highgate has been closed down by police following reports of ongoing anti-social behaviour at the premises.

The venue was temporarily closed down in December following three incidents of anti-social behaviour during November and December.

On Wednesday 2nd November, around 40 men are believed to have caused damage to the property following a disorder. On Saturday 17th December people from the lounge are believed to have been involved in an incident on Moseley Street, Highgate and on 26 December a further disorder involving a group of men was reported.

Officers applied for a further closure order and following a hearing at at Birmingham Magistrates Court on Monday (09/01) a further three month closure order was granted.

Superintendent Andy Parsons, said: “A recent succession of violent disorders at the premises left us with little choice but to apply for measures to enforce closure of the premises.

“The court agreed that the order was necessary to prevent the serious nuisance and disorder from continuing.

“We hope that the closure order will go some way to reassure the community that we are taking positive steps to ensure no further anti-social behaviour occurs.”
