Shenanigan's Pub in Whitestone has been shut down by court order.

Updated March 1, 5 p.m.

An aptly named Whitestone pub that was padlocked for allegedly serving alcohol to minors and allowing for some disorderly behavior has reopened, residents said.

Shenanigan’s Pub, located at 15-07 150th St., was closed by court order on Feb. 23 after the Queens Supreme Court approved the NYPD’s application to shut down the location, cops said. Residents reported that the bar was open for business again on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

QNS tried to reach out to the pub for comment but did not receive a response.

The bar had been issued four Alcohol Beverage and Control Law summonses — two for disorderly premise and two for sale of alcohol to a minor — on three separate occasions by the 109th Precinct in October and November of last year, authorities also said.

The New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) recently fined the pub for selling liquor to a minor, as well as for allowing two assaults on the premises, an SLA spokesperson said.

The owner, listed as “Balla Enterprises LLC,” also faced charges of not conforming with occupancy level regulations and government regulation for employing security guards at the location. The owner pleaded “no contest” and was fined $10,500 by the SLA on Feb. 15.

Following the court-ordered closing, the owner must report to court for a hearing.
