The general manager of Yea Baby's on Murfreesboro road reached an agreement in court Thursday with the owners of the building to terminate his lease.
Paul Eichel tells Fox 17 News he has no plans to reopen the business.
"I'm not intending to open another place in Nashville Tennessee," said Eichel.
Metro Police initially closed Eichel's club down last year citing nuisance complaints.
He reopened it only to see police shut the club down again Friday.
Eichel says he's finished fighting with police over what he says is a bias against hip hop clubs.
"From the day they found out we weren't gonna be country their intent was to get us shut back down," said Eichel.
Prosecutors say the problem wasn't the music but rather the multitude of calls.
Police say since the club reopened 13 months ago they have made 270 service calls to the business and another 366 to the surrounding area.
Perhaps the most serious was a shooting last month where 50 shots were fired.
that's why even with the decision to close the club prosecutors still want to seize any equipment Eichel may have left there.
"Our intent is in him not taking all that equipment and taking it to another building next week to run the exact type of business on another street in Nashville," said prosecutor Jan Norman.
A decision on whether that equipment can be seized will be made November the 19th.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
