Financial woes close Eva Longoria's Las Vegas club
LAS VEGAS - DECEMBER 03: Actress Eva Longoria Parker arrives at the grand opening of Beso at Crystals at CityCenter, the project's 500,000-square-foot retail and entertainment district, December 3, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CityCenter, a 67-acre, USD 8.5 billion mixed-use urban development center, a joint project between MGM Mirage and Dubai World, is said to be the biggest privately financed construction project in United States history and one of the world's largest green projects being built with the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified Green Building Rating System.

Located within the CityCenter complex on the Las Vegas Strip, Longoria's Eve Club closed Monday to save money.
The club is attached to Longoria's Beso Steakhouse restaurant. Beso LLC bankruptcy attorney Lenard Schwartzer said Wednesday that the restaurant will remain open because it is profitable.
He says the nightclub could eventually be renovated and reopened.
Beso LLC filed in January for bankruptcy to remain operating while reorganizing nearly $5.7 million in debt. The federal Chapter 11 filing claimed the nightspot was losing more than $76,000 per month.
Longoria owns nearly one-third of the business but is also listed as an unsecured creditor.
Beso Steakhouse and Eve Club opened in December 2009 and is Longoria's second restaurant. She and celebrity Chief Todd English initially opened Beso Restaurant and Kiss Nightclub in Hollywood in 2008 before expanding to Las Vegas.
