Tax Troubles For Zanzibar

Zanzibar Blue owners Robert and Benjamin Bynum maintain that the choice to close the Jazz club is not financially related but according to Daily News sources, the brothers “have been under financial strain.”

The company has been sued 17 times since 2000 by plaintiffs including their insurance companies, seafood and meat distributors and also the city and state, which were awarded $246,769 and $323,244, respectively, for back taxes from Zanzibar, and in the state’s case, Warmdaddy’s.
