Yea Baby's Nightclub Closed For Good


Yea Baby’s nightclub at 1204 Murfreesboro Pike, padlocked as a public nuisance last Friday, is closed for good.

During a hearing before Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn this afternoon, attorneys representing the operator of the business, Paul Eichel, and the owner of the property, Nancy Cook, agreed to terminate the lease effective immediately.

“This is very good news for the businesses and residents around that part of the Murfreesboro Pike corridor,” Chief Steve Anderson said. “This club had negatively impacted the safety of its neighboring community for far too long and was a drain on the resources of the Hermitage Precinct.”

The District Attorney’s Office filed the public nuisance lawsuit and padlocking order last Friday after an investigation by Hermitage Precinct officers and detectives showed a pattern of persistent fighting, assaults, drug crimes other law violations and breaches of the peace.

Officers changed the sign outside Yea Baby’s to make it clear to all that the business is shut down.
