Chris Brown / Drake Fight

W.i.P. Nightclub

Loses Liquor License

breaking news

0614_getty_chris_brown_drakeFrom now on, the only bottles flying at W.i.P. nightclub will be of the non-alcoholic sort ... because officials in NYC have officially suspended the club's liquor license.

The New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) ordered the booze ban last night, citing "ten separate assault and altercations beginning on March 11 2012, and leading up to a large brawl at the club on June 14, 2012" -- the night of the Drake vs. Chris Brown fight.

The SLA says it has hit the club with 17 Alcoholic Beverage Control Law violations ... including drug activity (twice) ... lack of supervision ... using the name "W.I.P." without SLA authorization ... and  "becoming a drain on police resources."

According to the SLA, the ban is "effective immediately ... no alcohol can be served or consumed on the premises."

Following the brawl, the club was shut down by the NYPD ... now it seems highly unlikely the place will ever open its doors again.

Sort of proves that WiP was the problem by letting both parties in. That basketball guy has a real strong case at this point

So 2 hot heads and their "Friends" get into a knock down drag out fight where people are hurt, and the club loses it's liquor license and both sides think nothing of it and continue their partying ways with no concern for the damage they have left in their wake.

The lawsuits are going to go on for years. And this pretty well places the blame on the club and its owners. Unfortunately, they will probably open a new club somewhere else at some time.

Lets hope other clubs take notice and ban these POS idiots so no one else gets hurt. I hope they get sued.

just thugs with money who don't know what to do with themselves. so, they go out and drink and throw money around and try to kill each other. Pathetic and now some weeks afterwards we're still talking about them.

"Lack of supervision" = selling bottles, raking in the dough and providing no security for patrons, just makin' money, makin' money, makin' money.

Hahahah - this tactic tells quite a bit. It's like the way the drill sergeant handled Private Gomer in Full Metal Jacket: Punish everyone....and they'll take care of the problems their way. I certainly hope justice is served....cold.
