Bombshells along I-45 to reopen, sell alcohol under new agreement

The Bombshells bar and restaurant along Interstate 45 South will reopen this week after an agreement was reached with Harris County prosecutors.

Earlier this month, the independently owned location voluntarily closed after it was hit with a temporary restraining order related to a petition for abatement of a nuisance. The order banned that Bombshells location, at 12810 Gulf Freeway, from selling alcohol and required it to close at 9 p.m. daily.  

Other Bombshells locations were not affected.
