Louisville bar closed after #MeToo post about owner

A downtown bar has closed this week after a social media post accused the bar's owner of sexual misconduct.

LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- A local bar is closed after a social media post last week accused the bar's owner of sexual misconduct.

According to our partners at Louisville Business First, a woman posted a #MeToo message claiming the owner of Haymarket Whiskey Bar committed sexual misconduct. 

A former manager of the bar confirmed to Louisville Business First that after the staff discovered the allegations against owner Matt Landan, they all quit. 

Landan first responded to the allegations on Facebook, calling them false. 

He has since deleted that post, his Facebook, and the Facebook account for Haymarket.

WHAS11 spoke with Landan's attorney by phone, he says they are just trying to figure out the situation before providing statements.
