Eva Longoria's Eve nightclub on the Las Vegas Strip was forced to temporarily shut down in a bid to save money.

Beso LLC, the company owned by Longoria and other investors, closed the nightclub this week, Beso bankruptcy attorney Lenard Schwartzer said Wednesday, as reported by Las Vegas Weekly.

According to the newspaper, Eve was losing money during the slow summer period when there are few conventions in town.

Schwartzer added the club needed to be remodeled, which could cost up to $2 million, according to Las Vegas Weekly.

"There's a feeling it was a little too passe," Schwartzer said of Eve. "We're working to solve that problem."

In January, Beso restaurant filed for bankruptcy after records filed at the US Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas showed it was losing up to $76,000 a month and owed $1.8 million to landlords Crystals, Contact Music reports.
Longoria's attaced Beso restaurant remains open.

The businesses together employed 128 full and part-time employees and Schwartzer said he didn't know how many of those people were affected by the closure of the nightclub, Las Vegas Weekly reports.

Eva owns a 32 per cent stake in the club and restaurant, according to Contact Music.
