Management of two downtown establishments have announced on social media that they plan to close for good on Friday.

“After 16 years in business, the Honest Lawyer and Downtown Kathy Brown’s announce plans to close as of this Friday, May 16th.”

Downtown Kathy Brown’s is located above the Honest Lawyer at 228 Dundas St.  The nightclub is known for its Vogue Saturdays, a retro night featuring music of the 80s and 90s. The Honest Lawyer featured live music on weekends.

Facebook posts on behalf of both establishments thank patrons for “keeping it alive all of these years.”  No reason was given for Monday nights’ announcement.
