Club de Ville900 Red River St
Known for the rock wall backdrop on their outdoor stage, Club de Ville fell victim to increasing downtown rents in 2013 and never re-opened after 16 years in business. But it’s perhaps just as well known as Chances, an eclectic lesbian club that occupied the same space from 1986-1994. Cheer Up Charlie’s recently moved into the building from East 6th St, and shares a similar laid-back vibe. The Club de Ville sign, topped with an old Best Western crown, was created by Evan Voyles of The Neon Jungle.
