The New York City nightclub involved in the brawl between Chris Brown and Drake got its liquor license suspended.

The State Liquor Authority suspended the license of W.i.P. (Work in Progress) and adjacent venue Greenhouse during a meeting Tuesday night. Agency Chairman Dennis Rosen told 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, claiming that it was losing $264,000 a week.

Police shut down Greenhouse on June 16, citing code violations. Two days earlier, Brown and members of Drake's entourage got into an altercation in W.i.P. Brown and NBA star Tony Parker were among those injured.
