Oh No! Club employees were involved? So maybe the owners knew about it too? Or were involved?
And the Mob has the contract for the door ?

That would never happen in the West.
They make all their money from properly measured drinks, with sales fully recorded and everybody served responsibly.
And the doorman, good hearted chappie, is there to keep out the dealers.
