Published Nov 06, 2020Toronto's Mod Club Theatre is set to close permanently after nearly two decades of operation in its west end College Street location.
The unfortunate news arrives this evening via the venue's social media accounts, and while staff announced the Mod Club's permanent closure, the cause remains unclear.
The establishment's announcement reads:
We regret to inform you that The Mod Club Theatre will be closing its doors and operations at 722 College Street, Toronto, ON, effective immediately.
Serving you for the last two decades has been full of great memories and good times! We hope we have been successful in adding to the community since we first opened doors in 2002. Our goal was always striving to bring big smiles, positive vibrations, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the years of love, we appreciate every single one of you. Let the good times keep rollin'...
The middle-sized capacity venue was known for its packed shows, its tiny but efficient bar, multiple sightlines, and the variety of genres and acts it hosted over the years.
In recent years, the venue played host to Post Malone, Car Seat Headrest, Royce 5'9", Angel Olsen, Com Truise, James Blake, Partynextdoor, Lana Del Rey, the Weeknd and many, many more.
The club was originally founded in 1999 under the name Lava Lounge before the Mod Club was officially born in 2002. It has operated under that name up until the present day.
