New York City sheriff deputies broke up an illegal New Year’s Eve party inside a Maspeth warehouse that had hundreds of attendees.

The deputies shut down the party inside the warehouse, which was converted into a bottle club, at 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

Officers found more than 300 party-goers inside the 55-30 58th St. venue in violation of the state emergency order. New York State has limited indoor gatherings to no more than 10 people and prohibits bars and restaurants from operating past 10 p.m.

The club was also operating without a liquor license.

Sheriff deputies observed attendees drinking alcohol, singing karaoke and dancing without wearing masks or abiding by social distancing requirements.

Five individuals — including the club owner, his wife, the DJ and an employee — were charged with various offenses including violation of emergency orders, operating without a liquor license, warehousing liquor, obstructed egress and health code violations, the NYC Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet.

The owner, Man Phan, 37, faces up to $15,000 in fines, according to reports.
