Dothan commissioners vote 4-1 on Tuesday to effectively close a local night club with a troubled past including a deadly shooting last year.

The business license was issued as a restaurant but is being run as a bar and nightclub. Local businesses and a motel near the business have numerous complaints. Over 350 calls to police have been made.

The vote yesterday both revoked the Pearl Lounge & Grill’s liquor license and denied its 2024 business license. The club is closed for now, however, the owner can reapply for a business license at a later date.
