A Brazilian bar will not be able to reopen until spring after drugs were allegedly found during a police raid.

Santafé Hall in High Street, Harlesden, was slammed with a closure order after the Metropolitan Police claim drugs were discovered last month.

Initially, the bar was served a closure notice on December 13, saying nobody was allowed to enter the bar until the case was heard in court the next day.

The case was adjourned until December 28, 2023, and when it was heard at Willesden Magistrates’ Court, the bar was given a closure order which ends on March 27 this year.

The three-month order prohibits anyone from entering except for emergency services, utility workers, or representatives of the landlord related to maintenance.

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.
