Delilah is Donezo: Rivington Street Club is Getting Auctioned off Today
Posted on: January 25th, 2018 at 9:39 am by Staff
This morning, some news that neighbors might relish. It would appear that the closure of Delilah on Rivington Street is permanent. An auction of its furnishings is set for later this afternoon.
Thus caps a tumultuous few weeks for the controversial, year-old nightclub. The downward spiral started with the slashing of three patrons outside Delilah on December 30. One of the victims required 250 stitches after being slashed across the throat. Then, the next day, on New Year’s Eve, a bouncer allegedly assaulted a bar-goer, but told cops that it was done in self-defense. Police later found that the bouncer hadn’t completed an annual security training since 2006. New Year’s Day proved equally controversial when cops busted the bar for illegally hosting an open bar and for permitting an occupancy above the maximum.
The violent, booze-filled weekend helped trigger the multiagency sting on January 3, which resulted in dozens of violations and the eventual suspension of Delilah’s liquor license by the State Liquor Authority. Paperwork for said suspension remained affixed to the front door for the interim.
Nothing quite says finality like an auction. Apparently, co-owner Paul Seres and company are not forging ahead with a fight.
