Sad thing is..... As soon as I read the headline, I immediately thought Red Coats
It is sad that this pub has gotten a poor reputation. I was all for it opening and shared several dinners there. But over time, it seems like a 'rougher' crowd started to show. Loud, brash and not able to enjoy an evening without getting a bit out if hand.
Whe they can't determine who walks in the doors, they can limit the beverage consumption for those who abuse. And anyone 'breaking' the peace should be escorted out. They can refuse service
Hope this is a wake up call and the line has finally been drawn "in the sand"

Bars are required to treat trouble prophylacticly by skillfully recognizing potential problems and ushering them out the door. I hate to say it, but bars should learn a few lessons about customer intimidation from the airline industry.

To "I agree"-
The issue not with the owner, this sounds like a dispute among lovers and jealous rivals. The fact that the owner of " The Crown"
has expanded into Pleasanton is upsetting you smells like you are a competitor. We have no record of a "stabbing" in downtown Danville at the Crown, Meenar's, or Norm's . Danville is safe, Pleasanton has always had a seemy fairgrounds crowd going back 30 years. I don't know the owner of "The Crown" but I will say they have the best fish and chips around here.

Bad News, I think you are right and that the city will act to either restrict their liquor license or hours of operation. Some of the Yelp reviews do say that the bar is not managed by professionals. I see that the Contra Costa Times also has an article about the stabbing at the bar as well.

Pleasanton is no different than any other city in todays world! rather it be a Bar owner or an owner of a Restaurant or any type of business.....There is a tremendous lack of respect for Human life out there! We all have a stake in this.....If anyone sees something going on that they feel is dangerous or can put people at harm they should Immediately bring it to the attention of the business owner or Manager...and if that does not work the Local Authorities. Simple... but you would be surprised by how many close their eyes or turn their heads....or just don't want to get involved! Old school is that you stand up for what is right...and if someone's feelings get hurt...well too bad....the big picture is most important...and the needs of the many far outweight the needs of the few! Then perhaps alot of this nonsense would curtail!
