Juliet Supperclub case adjourned, club to shutter until case is heard

The case of the Juliet Supperclub, whose landlord wants to revoke its lease after two murders were committed at or near the nightclub, has been adjourned and the club has agreed to close its doors until a later court date, a source familiar with the case told The Real Deal today.

“Thursday’s case was adjourned upon request of the nightclub. They agree to stay closed until the next court date,” which has yet to be set, the source said. 

The club, at 539 West 21st Street between 10th and 11th avenues, has a recording on  its answering machine stating that it will be closed for renovations for the whole month of January.

A call to Andrew Miltenberg of Nesenoff & Miltenberg, who represents the Juliet Supperclub, was not immediately returned. The landlord’s representation, Adam Leitman Bailey, of the firm that bears his name, declined to comment.

The building owner, an affiliate of the Newark, N.J.-based Edison Properties, sent the club an eviction notice after a man was stabbed to death outside the club in September and then two months later, another man opened fire inside the club, killing one and wounding two others, as The Real Deal first reported yesterday.

Singer Rihanna and rapper Jay-Z have made appearances at the embattled club.

The eviction notice states that the Juliet Supperclub is operating a nightclub at the site in breach of its lease. It also accuses Juliet of allowing “a culture of lawlessness and violence” to flourish there, and cites the deaths as well as alleged fights, underage drinking and drug use as reasons for the eviction. Juliet filed a suit in the New York Supreme Court in late November contending that it complies with its lease.
