A downtown Manhattan nightclub shuttered after a melee among singer Chris Brown and members of rapper Drake's crew, has gotten back its liquor license and plans to reopen Tuesday.

Greenhouse's liquor license was yanked last month after a bottle-throwing brawl on June 14 in the SoHo club's basement lounge, called W.i.P. The clash reportedly was triggered by Brown and Drake's relationship with pop star Rihanna.

Brown and NBA star Tony Parker were among those injured.

On Monday, a judge ruled that the club should get its license back while State Liquor Authority hearings play out.

The club says it will focus "on providing a safe and fun atmosphere." The liquor agency didn't immediately respond to phone and email messages.
