“Terminal Six has been in place since about mid-2017. We currently have four open complaints against the business we are investigating. There was additionally one complaint shortly after they first opened and they received a written warning for breach of the peace,” said Chris Porter with TABC's public information office.

The bar owner told Fox 7 he has decided to shut the bar down and sell it.
