Back in May another Ottawa business released the news that they would be closing their doors. Zaphod Beeblebrox had been a been a party spot and a great live music venue in the Market since 1992, so the news was met with a lot of disappointment.
The space is currently empty, but rumor has it… not for much longer! 27 York Street could be seeing the arrival of a new venue called The 27 Club. It’s a play on both the address and the list of musicians who have have passed away at that same age.
A Facebook page was created for the venue with the same address listed as the old Zaphod’s, but the page itself has since been taken down
While the launch seems pretty mysterious right now… some acts are already scheduled to perform according to Spectrasonic.
Hey Ocean! on November 18, D.O.A. on October 20, Cold Specks is scheduled for December 2.
