Cambridge's Paradise To Close on September 16

Thursday Sep 6, 2018

Paradise, the long-standing LGBTQ nightclub in Cambridge, closes its doors next week, it was reported in Bay Windows.

The club, located at 180 Massachusetts Avenue near the MIT campus, will close due to the fact that the building in which it is located was sold to Novartis Pharmaceuticals as part of the company's expansion plans. The company is said to have bought the space for 1.75 million.

The club, known for its go-go boys, porn videos and underwear parties, has been a Cambridge institution since the 1980s.

The rumors of its closing have been in the air for weeks and was confirmed, Bay Windows reports, by the club's principal owner Paul McCarthy.

The closing weekend events will be "The Last Dance - Paradise Closing Party" on September 15 and the "Paradise Customer Appreciation Night" on September 16.

The closing reduces the number of LGBTQ-designated nightclubs and bars to just a few in the Boston area.
