    Since when did drinks specials extravagant bottle service, and a friendly sports bet become a serious crime?!?

    You guys scream diversity but bulley businesses that don’t fit into your box

    I’m not a fan of the establishment but giving bad press to force them out is NOT fair. How about the real newcence of the neighborhood be addressed like the pharmacy, holland house, and high concentration of businesses that serve alcohol. Let’s discuss the 4+ light poles that have been knocked down in the last 6months on the same street as the aforementioned establishments.

    Find 5 bars in East Nashville that don’t advertise alcohol below cost.

    You can’t.

    I don’t like Cloud IX but the level of nitpicking in this article undermines your integrity as a journalist. Half of the videos were of 20-somethings doing what many 20-somethings do when they go out – dance and drink. It’s obvious you were definitely not the “fun” friend.

    Cloud IX was not a bad spot, it the people that come in there that act like kids. I feel sad for her because she was try to build something up for her and her family. But you thinking closing this club going to stop the shooting and the killing ummmm hell no. It’s killing everywhere but I don’t see them stopping it….

    There was no witch hunt when someone was shot outside of Kung-Fu Nashville…. It’s clear that you guys have taken over one of the nastiest neighborhoods in the city with forced gentrification, but if you’re going to clean up the “black” spots how about you clean up all of the cocaine selling and drug using in all of the “white” spots in the very same neighborhood.
