Marquee is celebrating its seventh birthday tonight, and looking back, it's pretty amazing the place has made it that long. Its location on 27th and 10th Avenue was a real nightlife no man's land when Marquee opened its doors seven years ago. Soon the area was overrun with nightclubs, all of which have come and gone since Marquee's run began, leaving it as the last club standing. But while there have mostly been fun times, let us also remember the SLA raids, forced closings by the authorities, and the tragic death of a patron after she spent a night at the club. But it's mostly been good times, and with the Las Vegas outpost about to open, why not celebrate the good and a hopefully happy future? Congrats to Marquee.
Meanwhile in the Meatpacking District, the four year old Tenjune space is about to get itself a little makeover. Owner Eugene Remm tells Eater that the space will close down immediately after New Year's Eve for a long overdue freshening up. Remm says that "there will be some new lighting and a new entrance" but "I'm not changing the lay out because it's the best I've ever seen." The renovations will take two weeks or so and then Tenjune will be ready for another four years of fun. Huzzah!
