[AllHipHop News] The city of New York has issued a restraining order against Dame Dash’s art gallery DD172, for allegedly selling liquor without a license.

Dame Dash opened the DD172 gallery in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York in the fall of 2009.

The four-story building housed an art gallery; a photography and recording studio, and rehearsal and performance space for a number of indie bands.

According to the Village Voice, Dame Dash and his associates are accused of six counts of storing and selling alcoholic beverages without a license.

Investigators found workers at the DD172 gallery selling liquor without a license several times, with one violation occurring as recently as May.

The city has also labeled the DD172 gallery a “nuisance,” and believes it could be a “front” for an illegal club.

According to The Voice, Damon Dash and associates had vacated the DD172 premises in June.
