Heaven's Door

Gay and lesbian South Yarra

Time Out says

Get ready for the Commercial Road is Dead debate to kick in again, as long-time gay venue Heavens Door announces its closure in the next few weeks. It’s not clear if it’s closing because of dropping patronage, or whether it was always part of owner Brian Frewin’s retirement plan. He’s sold the venue, which will re-open after a makeover, but it’s not known if it will continue to be a gay venue. Frewin has also sold nearby cruise club, Ten Plus in Porter Street, but that will continue as is for the next 18 months. What does it all mean for Melbourne’s gay scene? Who knows...
