Birmingham gay club closes as XXL relocates

Birmingham gay club closes as XXL relocates
News
Posted on 17 Jan 2020

As exclusively revealed by Midlands Zone in August last year, one of Birmingham's gay venues has now closed its doors for the very last time.


The Core, on Sherlock Street, which hosted the infamous XXL men's night each month, closed its doors immediately after the last XXL event in December.

Tonight’s XXL men's get-together will instead be held outside of Birmingham's Gay Village, at the Tunnel Club, which was formerly Subway City.


Last August, Michael Edge, owner of The Core lease, confirmed that the lease expires in December 2020. It now appears that the lease has been surrendered back to Gooch Estates early, meaning the venue will no longer open. 

In November, Mr Edge's other venue, The Jester, unexpectedly closed its doors for the very last time. 
At the time of Zone’s publication of the story, Mr Edge was asked for a comment. Zone has yet to receive a response.


Meanwhile, Eden Bar boys Garry and Cal are set to announce some great news in the next couple of weeks - the opening of a new gay venue for the LGBTQ community in Birmingham.
