Nightclub News: June 11, 2009

The upscale Envie Lounge in Fort Myers, Fla., closed its doors Sunday on the heels of declining attendance and decreased spends from its customers, says owner Nils Richter. He also blames the city’s ban on 18- to 20-year-old club-goers and the city council’s feet-dragging in overturning the ban that has been in place since 2002. Anthony Wayne and Allan Silverberg, former owners of Rockstarz rock club, announced they will assume control of the venue and will add a stage in order to emphasize live music from local and national bands when the venue reopens toward the end of the summer.
