Langermann’s on Light Transfer Denied for Second Time

A liquor license transfer at Langermann’s on Light at 1542 Light St. to Singh LLC was originally denied by the Board of Liquor License Commissioners for Baltimore City (BLLC) in June, but the case was heard again on September 10th by the newly-appointed liquor board. The transfer was again denied, this time by a 3-0 vote, with the board citing too many inconsistencies in the application.
