The NYPD Vice Squad raided a notorious Queens strip club arresting five dancers for prostitution.

The Vice cops served a warrant at Show Palace on 21st St. near 43rd Ave. in Long Island City just before 4 a.m., police said.

The officers arrested the women, ranging in age from 20- to 35-years-old, authorities said.

"Five girls arrested in one night? That's not a strip club. It's a brothel with music," a police source said.

Back in may the club had lost its liquor license afer a Daily News exposť that detailed violence, drug sales and allegations of prostitution. In July 2016, nine people were arrested in a drug dealing case.

Show Palace, meanwhile, was barred from obtaining a liquor license for the second time in January.

Captain John Travaglia, Commanding Officer of the 108th Precinct, told the state Liquor Authority that three of the four shootings in the precinct in 2016 were tied to the club.

The Friday raid began as an investigation of allegations that the club was violating liquor laws, sources said.
