According to the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, the restaurant's license stands suspended as of Thursday, Jan. 5.
Owners Lance White and Richard Eldridge were not immediately available for comment. A voicemail greeting on the restaurant's phone line said it's "closed for remodeling until the 12th," but city staff confirmed that no permits were on file for any project under way.
According to the Daily Post, the suspension came as a result of numerous police calls made to the bar during the past two years.
The bar made headlines in 2010 when a busboy and a cook were arrested for sexually assaulting two women at the club.
Police said the men followed two women who went to an upstairs room in the club to sleep after becoming intoxicated. Both pleaded guilty to related charges.
