    New name and changes at nightclub formerly known as Sinergy in New Haven.

    Same club but new name.  The New Haven nightclub were a man was stabbed to death last year is scheduled to reopen, according to the New Haven Register.

    The club formerly known as Sinergy, previously named Hammer Jaks and the Sci-Fi Cafe, will open its doors as the Crown Street Bar and Grill.

    The club will open only for lunch and dinner and will close at 9 p.m. because it has not yet complied with all the requirements in a January agreement with the state Department of Consumer Protection, police officials tell the Register.  

    The club's liquor license was suspended after a dance-floor stabbing on November 28 where Bambatta Carr was killed and two others were injured.

    "They still haven't fulfilled the requirements of the agreement, so that's why they're not open later," said Police Lt. Rebecca Sweeney-Burns.  Management wanted to open the nightclub portion but, after meeting with city attorneys, police requested they hold off.

    Officer Joe Avery, who completed a recent inspection, tells the New Haven Register, the club has installed the required security camera system that faces every exit and entrance.  The club has reportedly already purchased handheld metal detector wands and will be required to hire two extra-duty police officers as security on busy nights for at least the first four weeks.

    "We're going to be making sure they're complying with the orders." Avery added.
