NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A judge determined on Wednesday that a popular south Nashville nightclub recently padlocked by authorities will remain closed until a scheduled hearing later this month.
Rado's, formerly Silverado's, was boarded up by police last Wednesday after being declared a public nuisance.
The nightspot had become the persistent site of fighting, quarreling, assaults and breaches of peace.
The nightclub will remained closed until after a hearing scheduled for August 29.
The operator of the business will be permitted to enter the restaurant in order to make repairs that will bring it up to the codes it have been reported for violations.
In June, nearby Out of Bounds was shut down after several fights at the sports bar, including one that left one man dead.
The sports grill has since been allowed to reopen after adhering to changes mandated by police.
