The Pub Louisville, located at 412 S. Fourth St. in Fourth Street Live, closed Monday morning.
Nancy Parrott, director of marketing and public relations for Tavern Restaurant Group Inc., the Cincinnati company that owns The Pub, said there is an ongoing lawsuit between Tavern Restaurant Group and The Cordish Cos., which developed Fourth Street Live. But she declined further comment about the lawsuit.
Courts were closed today because of the Veterans Day holiday, but a copy of the lawsuit, filed Oct. 28, was provided to Business First by Mark Smedal, an attorney with Smedal Harralson & Croce, who represents Tavern Restaurant Group.
In the lawsuit, Kentucky Pub Investments LLC, the operating name for Tavern Restaurant Group in Louisville, disputes common area maintenance costs that it claims were imposed retroactively by Louisville Galleria LLC, the Cordish subsidiary that owns Fourth Street Live. The company claims that rent payments it made were applied by Louisville Galleria to those costs, and that, as a result, Cordish claimed that Tavern Restaurant Group had failed to pay its rent from April to September.
