The Boogie nightclub closes

Posted online

Downtown nightclub staple The Boogie closed this summer, and the building owners are deciding what to do with the property.

The 321 South Ave. establishment shuttered in late June, said Kristin Lake, assistant to Mike Jalili of the Jalili family of businesses, including the Black Sheep, Touch and Flame restaurants. Luke Mayo, owner and general manager of The Boogie, could not be reached for comment by deadline, and the club’s website, phone number and email are no longer functional.

“The owner and general manager of the club just decided he was done,” Lake said.

She was unsure how long The Boogie operated. Its Facebook page bills the club as “one of Springfield's oldest and most popular” bars. Downtown Springfield Association Executive Director Rusty Worley estimates the club has been on South Avenue for at least 15 years and possibly as long as 20.

"It’s one of our early nightlife establishments," he said.

Lake said the Jalilis are not actively marketing the property for sale or lease.

“They have three other projects right now, so Boogie’s kind of on the back burner as to what they want to do with it,” Lake said.
