WEHO Times - Iconic Rage Nightclub, located at 8911 Santa Monica Blvd, is permanently closing after operating in the heart of West Hollywood’s Boystown (now known as the LGBT Rainbow District) for 37 years. According to sources, the restaurant/bar and multi-level nightclub did not renew their lease which was up in November. Former employees also blame the COVID-19 pandemic and high rent as factors in its closure.

With the recent closing of Gym Sportsbar on July 8th and Flaming Saddles Saloon on August 16th, there has been much speculation that Rage Nightclub was next on the Santa Monica Boulevard chopping block, while bars and dance clubs remain shuttered during the pandemic.
