'Don't wait': Popular Charlotte nightclub announces it will close in June

The Roxbury, which has been open in Uptown for over a decade, will be closing in June, the owners announced.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — After more than a decade in Uptown Charlotte, the Roxbury nightclub is closing due to its lease expiring, the owners said. 

"We have five weekends left. Don't wait," a post on the club's Instagram page says. "Thank you Charlotte for 11 years of support and all the memories." 

The Roxbury, named after the iconic 90s film and "Saturday Night Live" sketches that starred Will Ferrell, was opened by Jody Sullivan in 2012, who previously owned The Breakfast Club, an '80s-themed club off Caldwell Street that closed in 2012. 

The club's final day will be June 24.

Charlotte radio personality Ramona Holloway hopes history will repeat itself with another decade-themed club opening in its place. 

"I'm hoping this means a 2000s hangout is coming soon nearby," she wrote on Instagram. "No matter what he calls it, DJ Jody Jam has always been supportive of the Matt and Ramona Show and has given us use of his venue ... without ever charging 1 single cent."
