UPDATE 11:26 a.m.: The owners of Beefeater’s Tavern in Horseheads have released a statement following an incident in a parking lot outside of their business early New Year’s Day.
Beef’s takes pride in being a long standing and reputable business in Hanover Square for 52 years. The municipal parking lot outside our establishment is used by dozens of other businesses including the 3 other bars within walking distance and is often assumed to be “ours”. We have taken many strides to ensure a safe New Year’s Eve party including but not limited to: responsible serving, extra staff, safe rides home, limited entry after 1 am and additional cameras that are monitored the entire night. We are confident that our event goers were not involved in the situation being reported. It is unfortunate that the irresponsible actions of those using the parking lot caused the entire Square to be shut down. Moving forward, we would like to open a dialogue with the area business owners and local police to ensure Hanover Square is a destination spot for a safe and happy New Year’s Eve!Joe and Stacey White, Beefeater Tavern, Owners
