The Strip Club Featured On ‘The Sopranos’ Is Being Shut Down
Satin Dolls, the strip club that served as “Bada Bing” in The Sopranos is one of two North Jersey go-go bars that have until December 17 to cease their live entertainment for alleged violations of state laws, according to NJ.com.
Satin Dolls and A.J.’s Gentleman’s Club in Secaucus must sell or transfer their liquor licenses to a third party no later than January 3, according to the NJ Division of Alcohol Beverage Control.
Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino said that Satin Dolls' owner Anthony Cardinalle continued to run the business despite being indicted by federal authorities for racketeering.
The Cardinalles may have wanted to keep the business in the family, but that’s not how it works. Their continued flouting of alcoholic beverage control laws cannot and will not be tolerated. Illegal activity was glorified at the ‘Bada Bing’ in the fictional world of Tony Soprano, but it has no place in modern-day New Jersey. It’s time to shut it down.
