Club closed? Perhaps TBS is showing Flash Gordon.

This week’s Village Voice examines a trio of recent shutterings in clubland.

To sum up: The taxman had cometh away empty-handed at both the Roxy and Avalon, contributing to last week’s closures of both Chelsea hangouts.

Meanwhile, in Murray Hill, hotspot Happy Valley succumbed to landlord pressures:

According to a source, the East 27th Street landlord is selling condos in the building but is having a hard time moving units because prospective buyers saw that their future lobby is currently a club.

What ever happened to the whole “close to nearby bars and restaurants” selling point?
