When he announced in February that he was looking to sell Wall Street Nightclub, owner Scot Hafler said he wanted to keep the oldest operating gay bar in Columbus within the LGBT community.
Sandy Rollins and Amber Myers, who opened Bossy Grrl’s Pin Up Joint last year, said today that they have purchased the Downtown club.
“The rumors are true,” Rollins said via Facebook. “We bought Wall Street from an amazing person that I am so glad to know. Lots of work moving forward. As of today, Amber Myers and I are the proud new owners, and it will stay in the community.”
Rollins said she and Myers have sold Bossy Grrl’s, which features local bands and burlesque.
Wall Street opened in 1987 and features everything from lesbian dance parties to boys nights, country to hip-hop, drag to theater. Hafler bought the club seven years ago but has worked there for 20 years and told Outlook earlier this year that he’s ready for the next chapter.
“It’s time for someone else to continue the legacy,” he told Outlook in a February story.
We’re hoping to have more from the new owners tomorrow.
