Neo's Last Dance

"Goth and punk kids in Lincoln Park don't have to worry about scaring off trixies anymore at Neo," Eater wrote in July.

"Instead they'll have to avoid them in Wicker Park. The popular after-hours nightclub near Clark and Fullerton is moving out of its home where it's spent the last 35-plus years. The club's lost its lease and will (at least) temporarily move the party down to Debonair Social Club on Thursdays and Saturdays starting on Thursday, Aug. 6.

"Neo owner Cal Fortis said there are plans to build a daycare center near the space: 'We go from legendary punk club to daycare center.'

"The club is scheduled for 'one last dance' in Lincoln Park on July 30."

Here is the last dance:


Neo Thursdays launched at Debonair on August 6.


The next Neo Thursday is . . . Thursday!


Also: Helter Skelter Saturdays.


One final remembrance from July:

Just us and 750 of our closest friends. Y'know, Thursday. #NEO36

Posted by Neo on Friday, July 24, 2015


"Neo has been a staple of the area's alternative scene for over 30 years. Come in and experience a place where the drinks are strong, the music is a way of life, the dancing is unlike anywhere else, and only sin is not being yourself."
