Pleased by the progress Prive owners have made in the past month, county commissioners today granted the nightclub a 90-day temporary license.

The Clark County Department of Business License shut down Prive and its sister club, The Living Room, both in Planet Hollywood, in July following a Gaming Control Board complaint alleging various legal violations.

Business license director Jacqueline Holloway said club owners have followed the 11 conditions the department and Metro Police set last month in allowing a 30-day license, which ended today.  The conditions will continue with the temporary license, Holloway said.

Among the allegations of criminal behavior were allowing minors to drink and openly allowing illegal drugs to be purchased and consumed in the clubs.

The clubs’ security and owners have cracked down on those infractions, Holloway said.

Metro’s background check on Opium Group, the Miami company that owns the clubs, could take up to 18 months to complete.

County codes allow businesses to operate under two consecutive 90-day temporary licenses. The county could then grant a business a limited license until the Metro background check concludes.

Depending on that report, or those from other law enforcement agencies, a company could receive a permanent license.
