Nobody's talking about it yet, but something is up with Vaudeville Cabaret at 110 E. Congress St. The bar, largely known for holding a slew of punk-rock, hip-hop and other events during the past decade or so, is apparently closed. The phone has also been disconnected.
But if you check out the bar's Facebook page you can see it's been populated by information from Congress Street Clubs, the outfit that runs the downtown nightclubs Zen Rock and Sapphire Lounge. We called down to Congress St. Clubs this afternoon to see what's up with all this. Their response for the time being is "no comment," but they assured me they'd call when details about whatever they plan to open in the Vaudeville spot are finalized.
There's also a note on the Congress Street Clubs Facebook page insinuating that they're opening a new bar and lounge downtown. But, to confuse things further, we've heard rumors that Congress Street Clubs is also behind a new bar going in at 63 E. Congress St., where Knucklehead Alley used to be.
