The times they are a-changin’ for Spokane’s drag queens. Dempsey’s, the popular downtown nightclub, closed its doors on Nov. 4 and displaced the GLTB community and its nightlife performers. (Read our story about it here.)

Now Hollyrock, the GLBT-friendly bar that opened in November in the wake of Dempsy’s closure is also closed.

Hollyrock manager Robin Tuttle announced the news on their Facebook page on Feb. 4, claiming that the building’s owner, Scott Lanes, revoked the use of his liquor license, effectively closing the nightclub. Tuttle and her employees say the news came as a complete shock. They are nevertheless, looking for a new location.

In the meantime, you can catch drag shows every Friday and Saturday at 10 pm and midnight at The Spotlight Lounge and every Wednesday at 10 pm and midnight at Irv’s.
