Melbourne’s queer nightlife is shifting again with the sudden announcement The Glasshouse Hotel has closed.
Posting a Facebook message over the weekend, owners said the popular Collingwood pub had closed its doors.
“Thank you to all the amazing staff and promoters, yes we’ve decided to call it a day,” the venue said on its Facebook wall.
Last month, fellow northside LGBTI-friendly nightspot Neverwhere announced its closure.
Iconic in the community as a women’s watering hole, the Glasshouse was taken over two years ago by lesbian couple Libby and Rachel.
Dykes on Bikes Melbourne held a fundraiser event at the venue as recently as November 25.
Calls made to the venue by the Star Observer have not been returned.
