A Brooklyn karaoke bar was shut down over the Labor Day weekend after nearly 300 people were found inside breaking the state’s COVID-19 safety guidelines.
The Legend KTV, located on 61st Street in Borough Park, was shuttered by the task force consisting of the Sheriff’s Office and the State Liquor Authority (SLA) early Sunday morning. Investigators allegedly found more than 281 people inside drinking, dancing, and smoking.
Officials also said the venue had an obstructed exit, exceeded the DOB occupancy, had its liquor license revoked in 2019, had a vacate order from 2018, and had a minor present.
Dozens of NYC bars and restaurants have lost their licenses and/or been fined for violating lockdown rules.
