Doors to Close on Jim Morrison-Inspired Bar in Paris?

by Gregory Adams

A bar in Paris that pays tribute to The Doors and late, iconic singer Jim Morrison has been hit with some rather strange legal troubles. You may want to break on through to Lezard King (yep, that's the name of the bar), but the band's management is none too pleased about the place.

As the Associated Press reports, bar owner Cristophe Maillet was recently sent a letter from the Doors' Beverly Hills-based lawyer, Anthony Keats, warning that "The Doors do not want to be seen as having approved of your establishment and also the consumption of alcohol."

Maillet's establishment, which is decorated with band memorabilia, from posters to a bust of Morrison that rests over the beer tap, has been a dream of his for over 25 years and has been open for less than a year. The lifelong fan of the band serves cocktails that pay tribute to the Doors' back catalogue: "Light My Fire" blends rum, Cointreau and citrus juices, while the "Roadhouse Blues" mixes tequila, Cointreau and blue curacao.
