MANHATTAN, NY (PIX11) –  Residents of a luxury highrise in The Bowery are taking a neighboring night-club to court.

Owners of the pricey pads at 199 Bowery are asking a judge to pull the liquor license of the group that operates “Finale”. The building houses both dance and jazz clubs, and people living nearby say it generates noise more than 4 times the legal volume and making their homes inhabitable.

The club openly brags they have the “biggest and loudest” sound system in Manhattan, and routinely has patrons lined up around the block.

Furthermore, the neighbors are complaining the State Liquor Authority violated state law by licensing the club. According to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, there are only supposed to be three licensed business withing 500 feet of the condominiums. Finale is the 28th.
