A Sunnyside nightclub that was the subject of numerous neighborhood complaints has gone out of business.
Xio Lounge, located at 39-19 Queens Blvd, was closed by court order today so the landlord could repossess the property.
Xio, which opened at the end of 2011, was often criticized by residents who lived on 39th Place.
The residents would complain that the club’s patrons would walk down 39th Place and then enter into their back courtyards to smoke pot. The men would also urinate in their courtyards, they claimed.
Last April, following a spike in complaints, the police arrested two men as a result of increased surveillance. One man was arrested on a public urination charge while another for criminal trespass.
The police also arrested a bartender who was wanted on an outstanding warrant at the time.
