Two Queens karaoke bars were shut down over the weekend for violating city COVID-19 regulations.

New York City Sheriff Deputies shuttered two karaoke spots in Flushing after finding dozens of patrons inside each establishment.

The officers first shut down the Platinum Lounge, located at 41-16 Fuller Pl, on Friday night around 10 p.m. and charged four people for violations of the state emergency order, health codes and alcoholic beverage control laws.

The sheriffs found more than 30 people inside Platinum Lounge, which had no liquor license and only one exit, which was through a salvage yard, the department said.

Deputies then closed down another karaoke joint, WeGo KTV, at 36-10 Union St shortly after midnight Sunday morning — for the second time in a month. They found more than 40 people inside the location and charged 13 people with various criminal and health offenses, the department said.

WeGo KTV also had no liquor license and just one exit, the Sheriffs Office said.

The city has shut down several Flushing karaoke bars flouting COVID-19 indoor dining rules, mask requirements and social distancing guidance over the past few months.
