Rock 'n' Roll Beach Club Closing

One of Pleasure Island's main-stay night clubs is set to close its doors for good February 3, 2008. The Rock 'n' Roll Beach Club opened on Pleasure Island April 4, 1990, less than one year after the night time district opened to the public. The venue replaced the short-lived and likely forgotten XZFR Rockin' Rollerdrome. While the Rock 'n' Roll Beach Club pumped out similar rock 'n' roll tunes as its flash-in-the-pan predecessor, it scraped grooving to tunes on roller skates for a more conventional dancing environment often featuring live bands. At the time of the announcement, no future use for the location was announced.
