Last Rites Marks the End — for Now — of Club Monte Cristo

Last Rites Marks the End — for Now — of Club Monte Cristo

At the end of the Summer of Love in 1967, there was a mock funeral to signal the end. Fifty years later we have the end of one of L.A.'s iconic goth clubs, the Monte Cristo. Today they unplug the neon, strip the furnishings, and shutter the doors — but on Saturday, April 15, they partied like it was the end of the world. Hopefully Monte Cristo will find a new home soon (a little birdie told us One Eye Jack is currently available), but until then we can look at these photos and remember the decades of fun we had playing Gother Than Thou at Monte Cristo.
