An illegal club with nearly 400 people was shut down in New York City early Saturday for violating the state’s emergency COVID orders, authorities said.
NYC Sheriff deputies busted the illegal bottle club on W. 36th Street in Midtown Manhattan around 2:45 a.m.
There were over 393 people inside the club, in violation of the state’s restrictions on gatherings to curb the spread of the coronavirus, the NYC Sheriff’s Office said.
Authorities also said the club was warehousing liquor despite not having a liquor license.
Four organizers were charged, including for health and alcohol violations.
