    2. Supper club Juliet is undergoing "renovations", also known as the kiss of death. The landlord has apparently been trying to evict the crime-ridden nightlife spot for violating terms of the lease.  Considering the recent stabbings and shootings, many believe the club to be closed for good.  It was dangerous while it lasted.
