ManRay nightclub eyes October opening

ManRay owner, Don Holland, says this time ManRay will really reopen

ManRay (on gay nights Campus) was a popular fetish bar that operated near Central Square from 1985 – 2005. It closed fifteen years ago to make way for condominiums, but last week the local newspaper, Cambridge Day, reported that the popular nightclub appears poised to reopen – not far from the club’s original location. The newspaper reported that ManRay owner, Don Holland, was awarded a liquor license by Cambridge and a 2:00AM closing time for 40 Prospect Street. The space was previously used by Improv Boston but has been empty since they vacated in November 2020.

This is not the first time rumors have swirled about a reopening of this popular bar. Back in 2013 I wrote about how the bar would reopen later in the summer, but that never happened. This time, the space seems to be a better fit and the paperwork with the city of Cambridge appears to be in order. The only question on my mind is if the much loved club reopens, will Campus (gay nights) also return.

Stay tuned. I’l let you know when there is more to share.

Pride Sports volleyball registration is open

Pride Sports Boston has just opened registration for their fall volleyball season. Early bird registration runs through Tuesday, August 31st and costs only $45. After early bird registration closes, you can still register up through Thursday, September 16th for $55.

Pride Sports Boston will host an “Open Play” on September 15th and the season will start the following week, continuing on through October 27th. Games will be played Wednesday evenings at the Doherty Playground in Dorchester – near the Fields Corner T station.

Trophy Room reopens today @4PM

The Trophy Room which is located at 26 Chandler Street in the StayPineapple boutique hotel (formerly the Chandler Inn) in the South End will reopen today (Wednesday, August 4th) for the first time since closing in March 2020. Today’s “soft” opening is a promising sign, but the bar will initially only be open Wednesday through Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday).

Below are several photos of the restaurant and bar. While closed, the management team took time to update the interior giving the space a whimsical “Alice in Wonderland” vibe. New, comfortable bar and high top chairs and flooring are varying shades of white, grey and black that contrast with the satin, chartreuse used in the dining room and lounge space.

The hours of operation will change over time but initially will be Wednesday – Saturday from 4PM – 12AM and Sunday 12PM – 8PM. The management team is planning to host one drag event each week but that is contingent upon several variables. Brunch will be served all day on Sunday.

Stop by and check out the newly redesigned Trophy Room.
