Looks like bottle service at Jigga's latest 40/40 Club, set to open up in Brooklyn in the near future, has been put on pause thanks to the now-infamous catfight between Young Money star Drake and singer Chris Brown.

According to reports, table side service on bottles has been yanked from the 40/40 menu as instructed by NY officials. Seems they don't want a possible incident in which stars, club patrons and NBA hoopers get entangled in more bottle-throwing melées.

Because of this champagne bottle-throwing brawl, rapper and entrepreneur, Jay-Z will not have "Bottle" service at his upcoming new 40/40 Club in Brooklyn, according to the New York Daily News. The New York State Liquor Authority was instructed by developers of Jay-Z's club that bottle service was removed from the Club's menu, as well at bars and restaurants in the arena. So if you want to look good and party like a rock star at Jay-Z's future 40/40 Club, with hoochies and bottle service at your table, drink plenty of liquor in those red plastic cups and dream on. (Examiner)

Club WiP, where the fisticuffs took place, is now under the watchful eye of authorities, not that it needed the bad press: Before Bottlegate, the NY nightclub was already under fire for several notable offenses, including safety violations, selling alcohol to minors and even dealing a little kush to the boys in blue.

With the future of bottle service and boozing at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club at the Barclays Center hanging in the balance, it looks like the first real casualty of last week's bloody club battle between Drake and Chris Brown might be the demon's lair itself: nightclub WiP (Work In Progress), which played host to Drake and Brown's brawl, received 14 violations from the State Liquor Authority yesterday and is in serious danger of being shut down. WiP, which is located on Varick Street in SoHo, had its own share of legal woes prior to the Brown/Drake showdown. Over the past few years, it has been charged with selling alcohol to minors, violating fire and voice ordinances, hiring unlicensed security guards and selling marijuana to an undercover police officer. The club was shut down temporarily following the now infamous June 14 fight, and is currently being sued for $20 million by San Antonio Spurs Guard/former Mr. Eva Longoria Tony Parker over a scratched cornea he received during the brawl. (Gothamist)

Ever since the assualt on Rihanna at the hands of Breezy a few years ago, it's pretty well known that Chris really ain't on Jay-Z's favorite people list. So today we ask, is it fair that Breezy's latest altercation may possibly disrupt the cash flow at his Hov's club?
