Cityfox's Brooklyn Mirage venue initially launched in the summer of 2015. The event space had a grand opening at a new location in Bushwick, Brooklyn on May 21. "Every last element is going to be perfect," Simar Singh, Director of Marketing for Cityfox, enthused to THUMP.
But city government disagreed: the New York Department of Buildings revoked the club’s temporary place of assembly permit last week. According to a photo of a notice captured at the club by the site Dancing Astronaut, The Department of Buildings declared the “conditions in this premises” to be “imminently perilous to life.” In an email to Billboard, a spokesman for the Department of Buildings cited "non-compliance with approved safety plans" -- especially those relating to fire safety -- as a reason for the revoked permit.
