Dozens of police officers, sheriff's deputies and D-E-A agents searched the Black Angus Businessmen's Private Club just before 11 last night.
Some people were taken from the building in handcuffs, though it's unclear at this time how many people were arrested.
The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency have been investigating the Black Angus for more than a year.
Authorities say they have evidence of liquor violations and drug dealing as well as violations of Roanoke City's nude dancing ordinance and state indecent exposure laws.

At the Kremlin, the two leaders signed an agreement that commits both nations to cutting their nuclear arsenals by two- thirds.
Bush says it opens a new era in relations between Russia and the U-S.
Under the treaty, neither side has to destroy its weapons.
Meanwhile, thousands of warheads could simply be put in storage, and that's raising concerns about security, especially in Russia.

Investigators for the Levy family say they've been told that Chandra was found NOT with her jogging shoes, but rather, her tennis shoes.
That fueled their belief that Levy was lured to the park by someone she knew-- not out on a run the day she disappeared last year.
Meanwhile, police say the condition of her skull indicates that her death was no accident.
The medical examiner is still determining the cause.
