Club Bohemia in Cambridge's Central Square to Close

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like another iconic music club is shutting down.

Vanyaland is reporting that Club Bohemia, which is located in the basement of The Cantab Lounge in Cambridge's Central Square, is closing on September 2, with the website for the place stating that its final show is September 1--and also mentioning that The Cantab will remain in operation. No reason has been given for the closure of the club at this point in time, and a post on its Facebook page discusses starting an online petition to save the place, so stay tuned for any updates as they come in.

Club Bohemia has featured many local and regional acts over the years, while the Cantab itself was once known for being home to Little Joe & The Thrillers, an R&B group that played there countless times (Cook passed away in 2014).

The address for Club Bohemia (and The Cantab Lounge) is 738 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02139.

[August 30 update: Based on a blog post, it looks like the last night at Club Bohemia will be Saturday, September 1.]
