Secrets Gentlemen's Club in Woodside was shut down by the NYPD.

A Woodside gentlemen’s club has been permanently shut down by the NYPD after the city found that patrons were buying and selling cocaine inside.

Secrets Gentlemen’s Club, at 49-14 Queens Blvd., was permanently closed on Sept. 9 for several reasons, according to a NYPD spokesperson. Cocaine was sold out of the club several times, the spokesperson said, and the owners also broke several Alcoholic Beverage Control laws. The NYPD did not specify which laws were broken.

 

Patrons of the club also committed a robbery in a nearby location, the NYPD said. Last November, a 38-year-old man was gunned down outside of the club. He was shot twice in the chest after a fight broke out at 4 a.m, according to the NY Post.

“Secrets has been a bad business that brought violence to our community,” said Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer. “Just last year, a man was shot and killed outside the establishment. These aren’t the kinds of businesses we want or need in our neighborhood, and I’m pleased that the NYPD has taken action to shut the club down.”

According to the Department of Buildings (DOB), Flushing-based building owner Larju Holding Corp. received a complaint on July 28 for doing construction on the building without a permit. The building has been operating as an adult establishment as early as 2005, according to complaints filed with the DOB.

QNS called Larju Holding Corp. but the number was disconnected. Calls to Secrets Gentlemen’s Club were not returned.
