(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - A Tuesday reopening is planned for Greenhouse, the New York City nightclub shuttered after it was the scene of a brawl between the entourages of Chris Brown and Drake.

Greenhouse's liquor license was suspended last month, just days after the June 14 fracas broke out. A judge said Monday the club should get the license back while State Liquor Authority hearings play out.

R&B singer Chris Brown and members of rapper Drake's entourage got into a bottle-throwing brawl in the club's basement lounge, called W.i.P. Brown and NBA star Tony Parker were among those injured.

Parker suffered a scratch on his left cornea during the nightclub melee and was afraid the injury might sideline him during the Olympics but he has since been cleared by doctors to play.

Police shut the club down but later agreed to let it reopen with enhanced security. But it has stayed closed because of the suspended liquor license.

The club says it will focus "on providing a safe and fun atmosphere." The liquor agency didn't immediately respond to phone and email messages.
