The Decade in Club Closures


Ah Studio B, your run was fierce but short. Eater catalogues a handful of the myriad nightlife venues that came and went in the aughts, from legendary (the Beatrice, Bungalow 8) to the just plain silly (hi, Lotus!). Bottle service was the great sword of the ’00s, it emerges, first slaying clubs of the “16 different types of bottled water!”-era, then turning and committing seppuku upon itself as the go-go days of the Wall Street naughties turned to ash and plastic bottles of vodka. Farewell, fortresses of shame. May you take all the regrettable things that happened behind your exclusive walls to the grave with you. [Eater]
