Well, actually, it just closed. Venue, which last year replaced Billy Reed’s in the Standard Dairy building, closed last month (according to a person working next door at the Eliot E-Mat Café. On craigslist, the owners of Venue are selling off what equipment is left from the restaurant. I never made it into Venue, so I can’t say what it was like (Billy Reed’s closed in 2006, so Venue was less than two years in operation), nor have I seen any press on its closing and can’t find any info online about it. We’ll see what happens next with the space.
