The Eagle's Nest and the Silk club, a popular attraction that featured go-go dancers, were shut down last week because of unspecified alcohol issues.
"Tribal leaders have determined that an unacceptable number of incidents involving alcohol consumption have occurred at Pechanga Resort & Casino," said Amy Minniear, president of the Pechanga Development Corp., in a statement. "We are deeply troubled by these incidents and are taking numerous and decisive actions to prevent them from occurring in the future."
"The Vibe, which was our venue similar to Pechanga, was closed in mid-December already, and the reason why was we were experiencing some of the similar problems to Pechanga," said Patrick Dorinson, a public-relations consultant for the tribe. "And that was not consistent with the Morongo entertainment experience we try to provide our customers."
The tribe now uses that space for a showroom and has a nightclub in the resort tower that has "a very controlled atmosphere" and a dress code, Dorinson said.
