Tony Parker's Nueve Lounge
Point guard by day and club owner by night. Tony Parker's new venture is Nueve Lounge. Nueve is Spanish for nine, Parker's jersey number.
The idea of opening a nightclub in San Antonio is something Parker, the all-star point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, had been discussing with his brothers, Pierre and TJ, for some time.
"My brothers were playing basketball in Europe, and they decided to retire in San Antonio. We had been talking about doing something together, and my brothers like the bar scene. We wanted to do a nice lounge with a New York or Las Vegas kind of style." Nueve was born. The brothers had looked at other places to open a nightclub but settled on the location across from the Dominion because of its location. "We wanted to stay close here because it was close to our homes and all my teammates. I'll definitely come after every game and hang out to see how it's going," Parker said.
