BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Groove Lounge is reopen after a judge made the decision on Friday.

The City of Buffalo spokesman issued this statement:
"The Court simply found that a hearing should be had to determine if the Groove is a threat to public safety, before it could be shut down. The City will therefore have that hearing expeditiously."

The City of Buffalo and police issued an emergency closure earlier this week in direct response to a homicide in the bar's parking lot early Sunday morning.

The Groove Lounge is located at 1210 Broadway at Lathrop Street.
