A Brazilian bar will have to wait to hear its fate after drugs were allegedly found during a police raid.

Santafé Hall in High Street, Harlesden, has been temporarily closed after it was served with a closure notice on December 13.

According to a notice placed on the bar’s shutters, officers have "reasonable grounds to be satisfied that the premises has resulted or is likely to result in being a nuisance or disorder to the public", that a closure order is necessary to prevent this, and all appropriate bodies have been consulted.

Initially the closure notice only applied for a day, so the bar could not operate until a court hearing at Willesden Magistrates’ Court on December 14.

But the case was adjourned until next Thursday (December 28), with the closure notice also extended until then.

The conditions of the notice include only the owners, emergency services, health workers, council or essential utility officials and official letting agents being allowed to enter the premises.

Police have applied for a closure order to keep the doors closed for a longer period, which will be heard at the next court hearing.

Other local businesses in Harlesden have separately been issued closure orders after alleged antisocial behaviour and drug dealing in the area, following a mass raid on eight businesses and homes in August.

Sefar Café and El Tacos will not be allowed to open until February 23, 2024.

Fortune Launderette & Dry Cleaning, in Park Parade, will remain closed until March 4.

Baraca Hands hair salon, in Harlesden High Street will remain shut until March 7.
