Scores Stripped of Liquor License
Looks like the suits at Scores West will have to settle for juice with their jiggle. The gin or any other sauce will be scarce for the next few years.
Scores West Side strip club is losing its liquor license for two years after getting busted for prostitution charges last year. Last January undercover cops said they were propositioned by dancers in the club’s high-dollar private rooms, and yesterday a State Liquor Authority administrative judge came down on the establishment with a booze ban. The decision will be appealed, and the club’s managers told the Daily News they will remain open and selling liquor until all appeals are finished. Even if the club dodges this legal bullet, two other legal troubles remain: a harassment suit against management from a fired employee, and a class action suit accusing the club of skimming tips.
