In November 20, 2010 The Cure Lounge denied entrance to a group of Black Harvard students to a Harvard/Yale Game Celebration at the club.

As a result of this, the students, with the help of Boston City Councillor Ayanna Pressley brought the matter to the public and subsequently filed a complaint with MCAD (Mass. Commission Against Discrimination).

Today Feb. 25th the results of this case were made public:

Boston Globe 2/25
A Boston nightclub has agreed to pay a fine ($30K), issue a public apology and have its staff attend anti-discrimination training for closing the club when a significant number of black attendees showed up, under an agreement reached with Attorney General Martha Coakley and the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

Also in the Boston Globe 2/25 – The real feelings of Cure Lounge…

Last fall, speaking on behalf of the nightclub, George K. Regan Jr. told the Globe “there were a lot of people in line known to police and police and security circles as bad people, OK? They probably couldn’t spell the word `Harvard.”

In a telephone interview today, Regan bristled at being blamed for the comments he made at the request of the club’s owners last fall when the issue gained media attention and the attention of Boston City At-Large Councilor Ayanna Pressley.

“I apologize for nothing,’’ Regan said. “I personally don’t happen to frequent the Cure Lounge. The facts that were related to the media I was told by the owners, who happened to be there.’’

Regan added, “they’re obviously under a lot of pressure from the attorney general’s office. They have a (nightclub) license to protect. Good luck to them. I did nothing but repeat what I was told by the owners.’’
