Hundreds of Auburndale residents and small business owners rallied on Saturday, Oct. 16, for the shutdown of a rowdy neighborhood lounge that has been disrupting the quality of life in the area for the past eight months.
Residents were gathered outside of Kloud Tequila Grill (Silk Hookah Lounge LLC), located at 192-08 Northern Blvd., where they voiced their frustrations about inappropriate illegal activity occurring at the lounge.
Ever since Kloud Tequila Grill opened, Tsourapis says her family’s life has been a “living nightmare.”
“We can’t sleep because of the loud music and screaming until 5 a.m. every day. The constant noise, drag racing, garbage and sexual activity right outside of our home is affecting our health and neighborhood safety,” Tsourapis said. “Even though they’re operating without a liquor license, none of our many 311 complaints or calls to the police have made a difference. City Hall must shut down Kloud Tequila Grill now."
According to residents, the incidents at Kloud Tequila take place on a daily basis, seven days a week, much of it occurring from midnight to 3 a.m. over the past eight months.
Despite numerous complaints to government agencies and law enforcement, residents say nothing has changed.
The Auburndale Northern Association has launched an online petition for an investigation into the bar.
Dosung Andrew Jung, who represents one of the many small businesses on the block, said they’re concerned about the way Kloud Tequila Grill is conducting their business.
“Every day, we find garbage, vomit, empty liquor bottles scattered around the block,” Jung said. “Our safety is put at risk with drag racing by intoxicated patrons. Our quality of life is ruined with unacceptable noise from Kloud and sex acts inside parked cars at night. We demand City Hall shut down Kloud now!”
We demand an immediate investigation into Kloud Tequila Grill (Silk Hookah Lounge LLC), located at 192-08 Northern Boulevard, Queens, NY 11358.
We support the local residents and small business owners in the neighborhood surrounding the block between Northern Boulevard and 45th Avenue (north-south), and 192nd and 193rd streets (east-west) in Queens, New York, who have suffered greatly from the actions of Kloud Tequila Grill (Silk Hookah Lounge LLC) on a daily basis, seven days a week, from midnight to 3 o’clock in the morning, over the past eight months.
Reported incidents include illegal sale of alcohol without a license, sale of alcohol to intoxicated patrons, loud music, littering and vermin, public urination, the construction of unsafe building structures without a permit, drag racing and drunk driving, violations of COVID-19 executive orders, public sex acts, etc. We believe many of these incidents constitute serious violations of New York State and City Law, are potentially life-threatening, and must be immediately addressed.
Despite numerous complaints to government agencies and law enforcement over the past eight months, nothing has changed.We have documentation of these incidents, including dozens of 311 service requests, and can provide much more, including photographs, video, and eyewitness testimony.
Who is to blame ?
So the owner of this pestilent lounge is one Iqbal Kiran, lol! Yet another numinous holy immigrant totally unconcerned about flouting American norms and laws. What's he care? He's here to make as much money as possible, and if he ever gets into trouble he can just scurry back to whatever noxious rat hole he crawled out of.
Diversity is our strength! The greatest lie of the last 1000 years.
"Who is to blame ?
Certainly not Paul Vallone. He has been MIA since being elected.
Who's Paul Vallone? lol seriously, complaining about noise is racist now too. These people are just expressing themselves, and people are just going to have to put up with it, along with the ridiculous backfire machine gun exhaust noise, and people relieving themselves wherever and whenever. Welcome to the Woke Utopia!
You are the people who supported NYPD defunding. Now you reap the rewards. Have a good night's sleep!
"Certainly not Paul Vallone. He has been MIA since being elected."
His roots are in western Queens where that is standard behavior from an officeholder.
For example, what has AOC done for her community?
That is the reason her handlers selected that district.
People are allowed to congregate in a free society.
Take yourself and your commie anti-freedom agenda off to China.
@SEERofZOG said... Killing it again !
Welcome to the "new east flushing/Auburndale/bayside area". This is what "diversify" gets you. I've never seen so much garbage in Bayside as I have seen nowadays and im not just talking about literal garbage. This neighborhood has gotten terrible and it's only going to get worst with the shit that moved into the area within recent years. Soon you will have to worry about being shot around that area....its only a matter of time. But thats the way the politicians want it and you idiots keep voting the same shit into office, so this is what it will start to become. You think overcrowding is a problem now? You ain't seen nothing yet. Get ready for shootings, rapes, worst schools coming to the area soon. I'm glad I moved out of bayside after living there for 30 years. I moved at the just the right time.
Have they made numerous complaints to the NY State Liquor Authority? Why not? They should be making multiple online complaints every day.
Iqbal Kiran, a member of the Religion of Peace, whose followers don’t drink alcohol, smoke tobacco or read porn, everything his country men sell in their stores to the infidels.
A Muslim is running a nightclub with out a liquor license. No doubt sex trafficking is going on too. Sounds like a nightmare to live near it.
Good luck getting it shuttered for good
@People are allowed to congregate in a free society.
without being forced to wear a mask and/or be vaccinated by commies.
@Take yourself and your commie anti-freedom agenda off to China.
Nice try to deflect, but the fact is you are the activist commie.
Since you advocating free drinking and general law breaking (not mandates) see how well you'd do in China.
Xi would cut your heart out while you still alive commie punk!
Escape from NY has gone from being a movie to being the only way to survive for the dwindling population of normal people there.
@"Xi would cut your heart out while you still alive commie punk!"
Who are you? Some CCP Commie enforcer ?
Amazing how the "Freedom Loving Right" hate freedoms.
Prove me wrong ...
Why are the folks here harping on neighborhood diversity?
Half the protesters organizing against the tequila bar are Korean & Chinese families. Area has been ethnically mixed for decades. They even hauled in John Liu to attend one of their protests. They got the State Liquor Authority to fine the place and are trying to get the City to do something also.
Just open a sjochu BBQ joint across the street...
