  • Tupperware Remix Party at Coconut Grove, October 2010

Coconut Grove Nightclub is turning into a yoga studio. According to an article in today's edition of, the Grafton St. venue will be closing down at the end of the month and transformed into a Bikram Yoga. Owner Remo Petrella says he’s working on opening a new venue in Halifax. Meanwhile, the yoga studio's operator Kristin Johnson writes that the shop will begin construction in August and should be up and running by early November. So, yeah. Another one bites the dust, etc. Please allow me a moment of indulgence as I call for a moment of silence for that patio - a place where I and many others spent summer nights taking smoke breaks and/or making fun of people tottering up the street to Pizza Corner. However, Johnson says all is not lost - "I am a music lover and there will definitely be events happening there once I am up and running," she says. "That patio can be used for so many things."
