Eva Longoria's Vegas club shut down

Los Angeles - Eva Longoria's Las Vegas nightclub has been temporarily shutdown.

The star's Eve club was closed on Monday to save money but her Beso restaurant remains open.

Bankruptcy attorney Lenard Schwartzer said the nightclub is still profitable and could eventually be renovated and reopened.

Eva owns a 32% stake in the club and restaurant.

In January, Beso restaurant filed for bankruptcy after records filed at the US Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas showed it was losing up to $76 000 a month and owed $1.8m to landlords Crystals.

The bankruptcy filing was designed to protect $2.5m in assets and help the company Beso LLC restructure $5.7m in debt and other liabilities.

More trouble

It wasn't the first time Eva has had trouble with the restaurant.

In June last year, the 36-year-old actress was sued for breach of contract by the former managers Ronan and Mali Nachum alleging they had been forced out of their jobs by "scare tactics".

As well as accusing them of stealing cash, the pair were also said to have assaulted a server and punched a female patron in a document sent out by Eva and other part-owners including Jonas Lowrance.

However Eva countersued to "protect the integrity of the restaurant".
