The Starlite Lounge, one of Brooklyn’s oldest gay bars and possibly the first black-owned gay bar in Brooklyn, has been having rough times for about a year now. After the building came under new ownership this past December, there was a petition to landmark the building and protect it from demolition. It wasn’t demolished, but we recently received an email that said the Starlite Lounge is closing its doors for good on July 31st. There will be events there until Saturday celebrating the end of a neighborhood staple in Crown Heights.
