The Western Front in Cambridge Is Closing
A nightclub in Cambridge that has been in business for nearly half a century is closing its doors.
The Cambridge Chronicle is reporting that the Western Front in the city's Riverside neighborhood is shutting down, with owner Marvin Gilmore making the announcement last Friday. Gilmore said that he will be selling the liquor license of the club, which is located at the corner of Western Avenue and Putnam Avenue, though it is not yet known who might be buying it or what could be moving into the space.
The Western Front first opened in 1967, with the club being known as a place to hear live music, including reggae, jazz, and rhythm and blues.
The address for the Western Front is 343 Western Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
