A massive fight broke out amongst 30 party-goers, many of whom are male models, outside Paul's Baby Grand (a club located at the Roxy Hotel in New York City, known for its strict door policy) this past Saturday.
According to the New York Daily News, police were never called to attend to the brawl, which was raged between a faction of British models and a group of friends of the venue's security team.
“These British male models started this gigantic fight — it started out 10 on 10,” said one combatant. “These guys were being aggressively British. They were being really obnoxious.”
The argument began as a verbal altercation inside the hotel, but spilled onto the streets when security ushered the group of British men out of club. The group began insulting security staff, and that's when fists started flying. Bouncers at the venue were reportedly not involved in the fight.
“It just didn’t stop for 10 minutes," said the witness. “It was the most New York fight ever."
A representative of the club, owned by Paul Sevigny (brother of notable actress Chloe Sevigny), declined to comment on the situation and was surpised by the story. Paul Sevigny was unaware of the skirmish when the story broke. The club maintains a policy of not admitting new attendees after 2 a.m. in the hopes of preventing such incidents.
“People have been taking themselves much too seriously in night life," Sevigny had said of the club upon it's opening. “There was a lot of thought in trying to keep [Paul's Baby Grand] extremely feminine to alienate groups of guys."
