Night club allowed to reopen with new requirements
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
In a hearing on Wednesday, the owners of Out of Bounds Bar and Grill agreed to comply with a number of new requirements before being allowed to reopen.
The popular sports bar located on Murfreesboro Road was padlocked by police last week after authorities determined it to be a public nuisance.
Metro police have responded to nearly 200 calls at the bar between January and May of this year, including a shooting that left one man dead.
Among the conditions the owners, brothers Gardner Lewis Dixon and James Andrew Dixon, agreed to reduce the hours of operation. The restaurant cannot remain open past Midnight during the week and 1 a.m. on the weekend.
Security must also be increased to include registered security guards who remain on site until all patrons leave the premises and adjoining parking lots.
The bar is also no longer permitted to host "bike nights" and will be unable to play music that is audible to any of the nearby residential properties.
Officials said before Out of Bounds reopens under the new conditions, it must also meet all fire, health and safety code requirements and receive a permit.
