Fly Nightclub Toronto

Condo pressure claims Fly Nightclub

Fly Nightclub is set to shut down after one last hurrah for World Pride. The lease on the 15 year old establishment is up at the end of June, and as Extra! reports the landlord is looking for a major rent increase that owner Keir MacRae has balked at. Condo pressure is the ultimate culprit, with a new development slated to rise on the site near Yonge and Gloucester.

This has become something of a familiar story in the Village, as big retail and condo developments arrive in the area. A similar situation has jeopardized Zipperz, which is also slated for condo redevelopment. Nightlife in the Village won't be the same in the absence of both dance clubs, though it is possible that someone could still take on the Fly space. The timeline on construction of the condo is up in the air, and a licensed dance club north of Queen isn't exactly a common thing.
