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.
