NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Nashville nightclub that has been padlocked twice as a public nuisance has closed for good.
According to Metro Police, Murfreesboro Pike nightclub Yea Baby's has closed permanently. On Thursday, after a hearing before a Criminal Court Judge the club's owner Nancy Cook, agreed to terminate the lease effective immediately.
"This is very good news for the businesses and residents around that part of the Murfreesboro Pike corridor," Chief Steve Anderson said. "This club had negatively impacted the safety of its neighboring community for far too long and was a drain on the resources of the Hermitage Precinct."
The club was padlocked in early October after police said they logged more than 270 calls to the business over the past year, and an additional 366 calls from the intersection in front of the business. It was also discovered that several YouTube showing violence, drug and gang activity, and nudity were shot inside the club.
The bar had previously been known as Silverado's and was padlocked in August 2011 after Hermitage Police proved that the bar had become a regular source of fighting, quarreling, drunkenness and breaches of the peace that impacted neighboring businesses and residents. The owners of the bar agreed to changes in order to re-open. They changed the name to Yea Baby's a few months later.
