Eve Nightclub closes

Eva Longoria’s Eve nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip has been shut down for an indefinite and likely extended period – but her attached Beso restaurant remains open.

Beso LLC, the company owned by Longoria and other investors, has been operating in bankruptcy since Jan. 6 as it tries to restructure $5.68 million in debt and perhaps attract additional capital.

Beso LLC management closed the nightclub this week, Beso bankruptcy attorney Lenard Schwartzer said Wednesday.

“The restaurant is open. It makes money,” Schwartzer said.

The decision came as the nightclub has been losing money during the slow summer period in Las Vegas, when there are few conventions in town, and in recognition the 18-month-old nightclub needs to be remodeled, Schwartzer said.

“There’s a feeling it was a little too passé,” Schwartzer said of Eve. “We’re working to solve that problem.”

The businesses together employed 128 full and part-time employees and Schwartzer said he didn’t know how many of those people were affected by the closure of the nightclub.

It may cost up to $2 million to remodel the nightclub, and the Las Vegas bankruptcy court would have to approve plans to spend that money.
