Arcade soon open for business
A St Michael gaming arcade which was brought to an abrupt closure should be back in operation in “a few weeks”.
Jo Jo Sports Bar & Gaming Lounge, a digitally sophisticated arcade at the Carlton Complex in Black Rock, St Michael, had invited a number of people, including members of bingo-playing community groups, to try out the facilities as part of a test run two months ago.
That dry run, which did not involve the use of cash, according to a source, was meant to test the readiness of the lounge for opening to the public and give the staff partial training.
But three days afterwards, authorities moved in and closed the establishment, reportedly over an issue with its licence.
