ManRay May Be Returning to Cambridge
A landmark nightclub may be coming back to Cambridge, though it would be moving into a much smaller space--and would start serving food.
Cambridge Day is reporting that ManRay could be opening in the old Blockbuster space on Mass. Ave. in Cambridge's Central Square, which is just around the corner from its original home on Brookline Street. The article mentions that the new version of the club would be about a third of the size of the original, and that it would serve food as well as drinks.
ManRay first opened in 1985, bringing to the Central Square neighborhood an "underground" place that featured goth and new wave bands. It closed in the summer of 2005, with rumors floating around about its reopening ever since.
The address for the proposed new location of ManRay is 541 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139. Their website is at http://www.manrayclub.com/
