N.Y. club liquor license suspended after celeb brawl

By Associated Press

POSTED:



NEW YORK >> A New York City nightclub that was the site of a bottle-hurling brawl after a dispute between the entourages of singers Drake and Chris Brown has had its liquor license suspended.

The State Liquor Authority suspended the license of W.i.P. and its adjacent Greenhouse during an emergency meeting Tuesday night.

Agency Chairman Dennis Rosen tells the Daily News that the authority "would not tolerate violent bars that break the law."

The company that runs Greenhouse sued the city Monday for shutting it down, saying it was losing $264,000 a week.

Police shuttered Greenhouse on June 16, citing code violations. Two days earlier, R&B singer Chris Brown and members of rapper Drake's entourage faced off in W.i.P. Brown and NBA star Tony Parker were among those injured.
