Aphrodite bar to be closed

In response to a letter from Anahit Bakhshyan, a member of the Barev Yerevan faction in the Yerevan Municipal Council, Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan said that “Aphrodite” bar situated at 35 Khanjyan street in Yerevan would be suspended starting August 1, 2014.

Earlier, Ms Bakhshyan addressed a letter to the Yerevan Mayor, sharing residents’ concerns and complaints over ‘special services’ offered in bars and karaoke clubs, specifically the ‘Single rooms for 1000 AMD’ offer at the Aphrodite. In the letter, Ms Makhshyan asked Taron Margaryan to put an end to this vicious phenomenon.
