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, 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.
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.
“There’s a feeling it was a little too passé,” Beso’s bankruptcy attorney said. “We’re working to solve that problem.”
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.
The remodeling plans appear to be a work in progress, with the company issuing a statement later Wednesday saying: “Beso Restaurant continues to thrive, and at this time Eve Nightclub will remain open for special occasions and private events during a slight remodel.”
