Rego Park residents have cause to celebrate this week, as the State Liquor Authority has begun the process of canceling the Rumba nightclub's liquor license.
According to Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D-Forest Hills), the attorney for the 67-63 Woodhaven Blvd. venue offered the cancellation of the license in an "attempt to avoid the stigma" of having it revoked by the agency and the legal ramifications that follow.
From Jan. 1 to Dec. 27 of 2015, 90 complaints were filed against Rumba, 50 for illegal parking alone, according to Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison, the commanding officer of the 112th Precinct.
On Dec. 18, a multiagency operation was conducted at the venue, resulting in 40 SLA violations, five Department of Health violations and two FDNY violations.

Good. And let's get rid of the hot sheets motel across the street.
Why did it take 90 complaints?
"Good. And let's get rid of the hot sheets motel across the street."
You're referring to The "Haven" which is down the block. "Across the street" is a cemetery
What the heck is this?
90 complaints? 50 for parking? That is a reason to pull a license?
Begun the process?
It will finally get pulled. Sometime in the Spring of 2025.
They should focus on other bars in the area and while they are at it, raid all the bars on Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson heights. These places are breeding with illegal activity, prostitution, drugs...
where will the cougars go?
If 90 is the number to get action, then make it 90. Problems solved.
Unless they have valet parking, how can a complaint be lodged against a business for a customer double parking?
Bars don't close because of parking complaints.
This place is a drug den. The focus shouldn't just be on their liquor license.
