The Manhattan club that was the scene of a bottle-throwing brawl involving singer Chris Brown and Drake's entourage last week has been closed by the NYPD.

The NYPD Civil Enforcement Unit arrived Saturday night at the W.i.P club in SoHo, padlocked the door and put "closed" stickers on the entrances.
 
The club Greenhouse, which is affiliated with W.i.P and in the same building, was also shuttered by police. That club's manager was arrested Friday on a violation unrelated to the fight.
 
Sources tell NBC 4 New York that the violations stemmed from last week's melee, but that there were also some security and establishment-relation violations prior to the incident.
 
It is unclear how many violations W.i.P had.
 
Brown, his girlfriend, his bodyguard and NBA star Tony Parker were among eight injured during the fight inside the club, which police say began when Drake's entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. 
 
The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.
 
Sources also say police are working to set up an interview with Drake, who performed Saturday night at the theater at Jones Beach, about the fight. 
 
Brown spoke with police last week.
