NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The owners of a south Nashville bar are fighting the court system in an attempt to reopen after being declared a public nuisance earlier this month.
Rados, formerly Silverado's, was temporarily padlocked after the club became the persistent site of fighting, quarreling, assaults and breaches of peace.
Police have also responded to three shootings at the establishment since the beginning of the year.
“We're doing everything we can to comply with all the local ordinances codes and so forth and get the place back up to speed so that we can re-open. That's all we're trying to do,” Rado's attorney Mark Scruggs said.
The nightspot is expected to remain closed until a trail that is said to occur in October.
