Menjo’s not closing

DETROIT – Oops! We made a big mistake last week in our Raves ‘n Rants announcements regarding Menjo’s in Detroit, which won runner up for Favorite LGBT Dance Club. We wrote that Menjo’s may be closing, but owners Jimmy Dowdle and Jeff Hobbie have confirmed that the popular dance club is very much still in business and intends to stay that way.
“We have not spoken to anyone about selling the club,” said Hobbie, who has owned the club for four years with Dowdle. “I can’t imagine where this rumor could have come from, but it is only that – a rumor , and it’s wrong.”
In fact, Menjo’s has several big events coming up; March 20 they are bringing in Chris Racine, resident Saugatuck DJ, for a farewell party before taking off to Provincetown, April 17 is Menjo’s annual Resurrection Party featuring DJ Ra from Chicago, on June 5 Menjo’s is throwing a huge Pride Party and they are bringing in nationally know DJ Hex Hecter, and then on July 17 Barry Harris is making a return visit to Menjo’s.
Our apologies to Menjo’s owners and staff for our error.
