Chris Brown vs. Drake Club Reopens, Now Serving Drinks in Frat-Friendly Plastic Cups

About a month ago, New York City's W.i.P. Lounge at Greenhouse nighclub was one of SoHo's hottest spots. But then Drake and Chris Brown allegedly fought at the afterhours joint on June 14, prompting an unwanted police investigation by the State Liquor Authority that resulted in 14 code violations and temporary closure of the popular celebrity hangout.

Tonight, however, Greenhouse is reopening thanks to Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Wright, according to the Washington Post. 

But rather than looking like the former site of a hip-hop feud that left Breezy bleeding and Tony Parker with a scratched cornea, Greenhouse will most likely resemble a Toby Keith-sponsored frat party.

Forget champagne flutes and vodka tonics in highballs, Greenhouse is now required by law to serve its drinks in red Solo cups.

Justice Wright also ruled that the club's security team is required to inspect all bags upon arrival, presumably to make sure that Drake isn't smuggling in a Grey Goose bottle to toss at Chris Brown if and when the two meet again.

"We will be focused on providing a safe and fun atmosphere for our customers," Greenhouse management said in a statement.

There's still no word whether or not the club will also provide beer bongs and encourage keg stands to match its new red Solo cup motif.
