One Woodside gentlemen’s club has been given the thumbs down to bring more dancing girls to the stage.

Community Board 1 (CB1) voted on Tuesday to deny NYC Gentlemen’s Club , located at 26-50 Brooklyn Queens Expressway West, a cabaret license allowing them to have more than two women working at the same time.

Currently, no more than two girls are allowed to be entertaining at once.

CB1’s vote comes from the board members connecting the facility to crime allegedly taking place in the neighborhood shared with two other clubs. The community board also said they do not want the establishment to expand.

The Department of Consumer Affairs will now have to vote on the license for the Woodside bikini bar.

In April, Community Board 1 voted against a liquor license recommendation for Racks, a restaurant and bar that owners sought to open at 19-26 Steinway Street in Astoria, on grounds its female servers will be wearing bikinis as uniforms. Later in July, the State Liquor Authority rejected that license application.
