On July 23, Splash owner Brian Landeche announced that the gay nightlife institution would close its doors Aug. 10 after 22 years of operation in the heart of Chelsea.
While it is the end of an era for Splash patrons, "Musical Mondays" - now billed as "Monday Musicals" – will continue at XL nightclub, located on 42nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues.
The new "Monday Musicals" promises an "enhanced, supercharged" version of the Broadway series from 6 PM-12 AM each week. The goal is to welcome weekly special guests. Katrina Darling will offer a "God Save the Queen" burlesque performance Sept. 14. Additional guests will be announced.
Dougie Meyer, who has been with Splash for the past eight years, will join the XL team with "Monday Musicals."
XL is located at 512 West 42nd Street. Visit xlnightclub.com.
