Sherriff deputies busted a crowded underground bar in Jackson Heights early Sunday morning where more than 300 unmasked partygoers were packed into a basement.

The officers discovered the unlicensed bar operating out of a basement at Sueño Americano, located at 35-16 Junction Blvd., shortly after midnight, authorities said.

The deputies observed people — split into small groups — trickle into the basement over the course of three hours, according to reports.

The officers entered the club and found patrons packed together without masks–dancing, smoking hookah and drinking. They also found that all four exits of the establishment were bolted shut from the inside, sealing the crowd in.

Deputies ticketed the business, a DJ and several patrons for violation of the state emergency order, health code violations and various misdemeanors. The business was also charged for operating without a liquor license.

LIBERALS WRITE THE SILLIEST THINGS!

When you drive people underground, this is what happens. And yet we are told that this community does not have access to the vaccines and is discriminated against. Which is it?

So true.

The level of manipulation and lack of common sense is horrible. One step forward and three step backwards.

These parties have been going on since the 70’s when me and my family sold our home in Corona.
