Langermann’s on Light Liquor License Tranfer Denied

A liquor license transfer for the former Langermann’s on Light to 1542 Singh LLC was denied by the Board of Liquor License Commissioners for Baltimore City (BLLC) on Thursday. The board members mentioned false statements on the application as the reason for its decision. The group also failed to gain the support of the South Baltimore Neighborhood Association (SBNA).

Since 2000, the location has been home to Copa 2000, The Royale, Charlotte’s, The Reserve, 1542 Gastro Pub, and Langermann’s on Light.
