The building that used to house downtown nightclub 807 Fire and Ice will soon be a Cuban cigar bar.
Mandi Kaye, job coordinator with general contractors for the project Scenic City Enterprises, said Monday that the new business should be open within the next couple of months.
“We are gutting it out,” Kaye said. “[We will] make it all brick interior, make it look real nice, and then we’re going to start the Cuban cigar bar.”
She declined to provide the business owner’s name or the name of the new business.
But, according to Hamilton County records, the owner of the building is James Rhee. Nooga.com could not find contact information for Rhee.
Nooga.com reported in December that 807 Fire and Ice was closing down after fights and gunfire plagued the club.
On Dec. 4, fights started in the nightclub, and the incident led to four arrests and the injury of one employee, according to Nooga.com archives.
That night, as police worked to break up fights, a patron inside the club allegedly fired several gunshots, but no one was injured, also according to archives.
