Bronx strip club denied liquor license after protests

The State Liquor Authority has denied the application for a liquor license for the King of Clubs strip club on Oakpoint Avenue after protests.

The decision comes after Community Board 2 had protested and sent letters to the authority opposing the license, citing the club's past history of trouble.

Members of the community board called the decision a victory on their part.

Officials say the $4,300 spent by the club to apply for the license will be refunded.
