That was fast. Miami’s Mokai Club will reopen just in time for Miami Music Week after it had its license suspended last week after video emerged of a horse being brought into the club when it was full and music playing.
According to the Miami Herald, the club will reopen on Wednesday after they admitted to five violations in regards to the stunt. One of those violations is for animal cruelty. They will have to pay over $12,500 to the city and also make a $10,000 donation to a horse rescue organization. No more animals will be allowed in the club except for service animals.
The club lost its license earlier this month after video emerged of a woman and man riding a horse through the crowd at Mokai as music was blasting.
Said Mayor Dan Gelber earlier this month: “What kind of idiot would do something like this to an animal and endanger people’s lives at that club?”
Now the club will be open for service this week.
