M2 Ultra Lounge Faces Allegations

Of all the news to surface on 4/20, this one has to be the most ironic, so we'll just keep it blunt for you. 

The NYC hotspot, M2 Ultra Lounge, known for its big name DJs and A-list clientele, was shut down over the weekend due to reports claiming that “undercover officers had caught staffers selling marijuana and narcotics” (NY Daily News). Reports also oust the venue for having "several unlicensed security guards." Paired with "numerous assaults that have occured in the area," police had enough reasoning to close the club, and its sister club, Pink, at 10:30 p.m. on Friday (City Room). 

The private parties scheduled for the weekend were nipped in the bud, when officials served the venue papers (and not the rolling kind) on Friday night at 11 p.m. M2 took a big hit from this one, missing out on their high-grossing Friday and Saturday night parties. However, the nightclub is currently open and running and claim that they will still be hosting upcoming parties, including an NFL draft party hosted by Deion Sanders, a Saturday night party with Ne-Yo, "Size Matters" with Steve Angello this Friday, and DJ Prostyle's birthday celebration with Diddy, Jadakiss, Jim Jones and more.

The NY Daily News reports that “there are no convictions of any kind against M2 Ultra Lounge, only allegations,” and that lawyers for the nightclub will plead their case in court today.
