The Brooklyn nightclub, which was seized on Wednesday due to nonpayment of taxes, will open its doors tonight.
The club was seized by the New York state government on Wednesday night due to outstanding tax payments. A tax department spokesperson told THUMP on Thursday that Verboten currently has three open warrants for unpaid sales tax totaling $360,378.05.
A follow-up article from THUMP today revealed that Verboten's owners, Jen Schiffer and John Perez, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Brooklyn Federal Court on Thursday evening. This will allow them to stay open while its debtors find ways to restructure the business' finances.
Schiffer also explained that they had been actively negotiating a payment plan with the state, and that Wednesday's seizure took them by surprise. "All programming going forward is scheduled, and we've confirmed shows well into the future," she said. Verboten resident Matthew Dear is slated to headline at his birthday party at Verboten tomorrow night.
