NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans’ penguin dancing clubs will end on Monday.
The two-year-old dance club, which had been a staple in New Orleans’ neighborhoods, will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., the NOPD said.
The penguin dancers have been in the city for about 20 years and had been operating under a contract with the city, the Nopd said.
The club has been in New Paris since 2001 and was the largest and oldest of its kind in the country, according to the club’s website.
The dance club has hosted performances by some of the city’s biggest artists, including the likes of Beyonce, The Weeknd, Beyonce and Bruno Mars, and many other top names, including Bruno Mars.
The NOPDs website also lists the city as one of its “top 10 dance clubs.”
The penguin club had been an ongoing success in New Orleanians’ lives and community life.
The dance club was a major draw at the annual Birdland Parade, where the city was known for its dance troupe.
