Recently, more than 14 young women have come forward with stories about being served drinks that contained opioids and tranquilizers at Y Bar & Bistro in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This is one of the most popular bars for young college students at both Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo College due to its close proximity to campus and Kalamazoo nightlife. 

This problem surfaced on social media due to a TikTok video posted by one of the victims who said her and 14 friends went to the hospital after a night of drinking at Y Bar and Bistro. In the morning, they had no recollection of the night before and went to the hospital where they tested positive for opioids and tranquilizers. They were served drinks by the same man all night, who has also made sexual comments towards them and followed them on a spring break trip to Florida. 

Multiple women have also stated that they were allowed into Y Bar & Bistro when they were underage and were not asked the show their IDs. 

The victims have gone to the local police department but no action has been taken thus far. Y Bar & Bistro cannot remain open while women are actively coming forward with these allegations. Y Bar & Bistro needs to be thoroughly investigated as it is not safe for women to continue being served drinks that were drugged by the bartender(s).  Signing this petition will bring greater awareness to the predatory actions happening at this establishment.
