Lance Bass Responds After Being Criticized for Keeping WeHo Bar Open During Coronavirus Pandemic

Lance Bass has released a statement as to why his West Hollywood bar Rocco’s Tavern is still open.

The 40-year-old NYSNC member was criticized by songwriter Justin Tranter for having a packed bar on Sunday (March 15) when people should be at home self-quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Lance then took to his Instagram Story to address the situation, saying that the bar is cancelling all nightlife promotions.

“We are truly a family and for 20 years our focus has always been on community an safety,” the statement reads. “For that reason we are canceling all nightlife promotions effective at closing time tonight.”

While Rocco’s is closing at night, the tavern will remain open for now.

“With that same focus on community we will NOT be closing our kitchen and will remain open to serve food and drinks at a fair price. As many of you may already experienced many basic food items are completely out of stock at local grocery stores,” the statement continued. “We will continue to offer food, drinks, takeout and delivery.”
