Police launch offer to revoke license for Rita Ora’s illegal party venue, Casa Cruz


Rita Ora’s party venue, Casa Cruz, where she hosted her illegal 30th birthday party in November, is at risk of having her license revoked by the board.

Rita, who reportedly pocketed herself a £ 1million paycheck for the current series of The Masked Singer, sparked outrage after flouting lockdown rules to party with her friends on November 28 despite the strict Covid guidelines in place.

Now, Daily Star can reveal that Met Police have launched an official offer to revoke the license of the posh Notting Hill restaurant after allowing Rita to host the party.

The move comes in addition to the Met’s recommendation of four people for fines and, if successful, would see Casa Cruz unable to play music or serve alcohol.

In official documents seen by the Daily Star, Met police say Rita’s party was “in violation of coronavirus restriction regulations in effect at the time and a violation of a locals license condition.”

Police are calling for the total revocation of the license prohibiting instead “playing recorded music indoors, providing late night refreshments and selling alcohol both retail and on site.”



A hearing has been set for January 28 to consider the Met Police’s request to revoke Casa Cruz’s license

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea have confirmed to the Daily Star that a hearing will be held later this month to decide the fate of the venue often frequented by celebrities including Victoria Beckham and Nick Jonas.

A council representative said: “The location, it is under review and will be discussed in a virtual hearing on Thursday, January 28.”

A representative from Met Police said: “A total of four people have been flagged for review of a fixed penalty notice under the ‘Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020’ for violating the requirements not to participate in an indoor gathering of two or more people.

“Officers continue to liaise with the local authority regarding a potential regulatory violation at the premises.”

The Met had previously confirmed that they were called in for a reported violation of Covid regulations on Saturday, November 28.

A representative for Rita Ora declined to comment.

A representative from Casa Cruz has been contacted by Daily Star for comment.

Police were pictured looking through Casa Cruz windows and knocking on the restaurant’s locked door after receiving a call regarding a potential violation.



Rita has already issued a creepy apology for her actions

Rita and her friends are believed to have been inside the scene when police attended the scene.

After being caught off guard, the I Will Never Let You Down frontman offered a creepy apology.

Rita said: “Given the restrictions, I realize how irresponsible these actions were and take full responsibility for them.

“I am deeply sorry for breaking the rules and I, in turn, understand that this puts people at risk.

“It was a serious and inexcusable error in judgment.”
