Trendy London Nightclub Loses License after Anti-Semitic Brawl

(JTA)— A trendy London nightclub had its license suspended after a mass brawl there that involved anti-Semitic remarks.

Bouji’s, which has hosted Kate Middleton and other celebrities, lost its license on Thursday, the International Business Times reported.

The anti-Semitic brawl on Oct. 25, in which seven people were arrested, was the latest in a string of disturbances at the club, in London’s Kensington neighborhood.

In footage of the brawl, one participant is heard shouting “f—ing Jews” at a group of Jewish people who had booked a table at the club.
