A hearing is today in City Court on the eviction proceedings of a downtown restaurant/nightclub called Ichiban. Building owner Brian Murray says the operators have created an unsafe environment that is a detriment to other tenants.
Club operators say they are doing their best to provide nightlife to young adults.
The court case revolves around permitted use under a lease and whether a nightclub is significantly different than a restaurant as both operate under the same state license.
