Iconic gay nightclub and drag bar Talbott Street will close Saturday, June 25. Talbott Street has won multiple Best of Indy awards from NUVO, including Best Spot for Dancing, Best Place for Hooking Up with The Same Sex, Best Place to See a Drag Show and more.
Their official announcement below:
It's with a heavy heart and bright eyes that we must announce the end of an era for Indianapolis and the LGBTQ Community. Talbott Street Nightclub will be closing Saturday, June 25th.
The Talbott Street family would like to thank all of our supporters over the last 15 years! We've seen some amazing national talent come across our stage including our amazing cast of in-house performers. In addition, we'd like to thank the amazing organizations that we've helped raise hundred of thousands of dollars for the Indianapolis community. Without groups like IndyPride, The Bag Ladies, the Damien Center and Lambda Legal, the success of Talbott Street would have not been possible.
In the time in which we live, the idea of a safe haven is being challenged Talbott Street has provided a safe place to be for over a decade, for which we are very proud.
We'd like to invite all of our patrons, supporters and friends to come celebrate one last time with our staff and performers these next two weekends before we close on Saturday, June 25th. Doors will open at 9pm.
We've reached out for more information and will update this post as it becomes available. Bill Skaggs of Talbott Street contributed a statement to our roundup of local LGBTQ clubs' responses to the Orlando shooting.
