The Downtown Memphis Commission told FOX13 right now the venue is working with fire contractors to meet the fire code standards.
However, it is unclear when it will open again.
In November, Memphis police said Adelman wrote a $19,000 check to concert promoters, but the check bounced back.
According to a police affidavit, the promoters called and emailed Adelman but had not luck. That is when promoters called police.
Adelman appeared in court for a hearing Monday morning.
Now, people are wondering when the venue will reopen its doors. Contractors are installing a fire alarm and sprinkler system to help get the building up to code.
But it is unclear when the venue will be open again.
