Nashville nightclubs vow to make changes after being shut down

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Two Nashville nightclubs that were shut down last week as public nuisances agreed to make changes Friday.

According to a press release, the operators of Throwdown Liquid and Ultra Violet nightclubs on 128 2nd Avenue North appeared in court where Judge Mark Fishburn laid out a list of guidelines for the businesses.

The clubs must hire state licensed security guards, prevent patrons from bringing firearms on the properties and set a closing time of 1 a.m. until for at least 30 days after they reopen.

They are also not allowed to discount beer between 11 p.m. and closing, have anyone inside who is under the age of 21, and they must give law enforcement a record of each patron who comes to the nightclub.

Metro police shut down and padlocked the two downtown bars last Friday after several hundred calls regarding criminal activity at both businesses since January 2012.

According to a Metro police release, an investigation found repeated and reoccurring criminal and disorderly activities at the bars including fighting, drunkenness and drug violations.
