A Theater District nightclub that booted a private party of black Ivy Leaguers will apologize for violating anti-discrimination laws and pay a $30,000 fine, Attorney General Martha Coakley said yesterday.
“Massachusetts businesses cannot refuse to host events because of racial reasons,” Coakley said. “In this case, club staff made harmful and ill-conceived conclusions based on the simple fact that most of the guests were black.”
According to the complaint, the Cure Lounge abruptly shut down a party organized by black Harvard grads in celebration of the Harvard-Yale game in November — although the hundreds of attendees had caused no problems inside or outside the club.
