    Midtown Music Hall in Chattanooga

Two downtown nightclubs accused of operating disorderly businesses were penalized Thursday by the Chattanooga Beer and Wrecker Board.

The beer board permanently revoked the license of Midtown Music Hall and suspended the license of Fire and Ice for 30 days.

Police filed reports in August describing disorderly crowds around the establishments that resulted in arrests.

Midtown Music Hall also had multiple previous violations which resulted in suspensions by the beer board.

For complete details, see more in tomorrow’s Times Free Press.

Now a real investigative reporter would look into both sides of this issue, and get the story from all sides. Such as, were the police, at the request of downtown tenants, provoking the situation in order to shutdown the business? Downtown chattanooga use to be a very segregate part of town. It appears some would like to bring that time back. My family and friends are too racially diverse, and that's why we don't attend any of the chattanooga venues. They're far too exclusive and segregated for a group such as ours. We usually leave town instead and go to establishments that welcome racial diversity. I further can't understand why people would move to live downtown anyway. These people need to go back to the suburbs if they want peace and quiet. They've complained about everything, from ringing churchbells to the nightlife. I thought that's what downtown, which is the heart of any community, were all about. NOISE!

You obviously have no clue what is actually going on down there.

I'm not surprised that you might have problems with that obvious chip on your shoulder.

Congrats amnestiUSAf84. You have shown yourself ignorant of anything involving these disorders. The police RESPONDED to the disorders.. they were not involved in them.(until they got there that is) I know this because I was there every weekend. You obviously were not. - Maybe if these citizens would learn how to act...

Yes, you're right. And when the actual story with the details publishes tomorrow (just like it says it will at the bottom of the article), I'm sure you'll get the details you're looking for. Sheesh.

Here's a thought...wait until tomorrow when the full article comes out before you jump to conclusions. No matter what you may think, there is probably more to the story.

tnvolssuckbad said... Hey amesti, why is that your people can't go to a club

What's that your people all about? I don't own any people. Do you? I'm likely whiter than you are. I just don't wear the white sheets and pointy little caps you and yours do. Just because someone is of the same class{actually I'm better} and color as you doesn't mean they have to be in agreement with this modern day racism and exclusiven attitude most everyone know is taking place in downtown Chattanooga.

Why is there never an article about the white chicks passed out drunk on benches downtown? Spread eagle showing all their worldygifts to anyone who happens to pass by? What Midtown and those other targeted clubs should have done a long time ago was have some of their employees or patrons go around town and film what's happening at some of those upstanding downtown clubs.

Both of these establishments have long attracted more than their fair share of thugs (both white and black). Too bad...thugs always ruin it for everyone else. FYI, check out the FBI crime stats...Chattanooga crime rates are roughly double the national average.

They're far too exclusive and segregated for a group such as ours. We usually leave town instead and go to establishments that welcome racial diversity." What venues?
