We are easy to find; two blocks east of Meridian Street on 22nd St. History of Talbott Street The Talbott Street Theatre opened as a movie house in 1920. However, the building and four blocks of Talbott Street would become far better known in other ways during the decades to come. During the mid-1950's the art festival that would become one of the city's oldest, the Talbott Street Art Fair, was established. It began modestly in an alley as a way for students at the nearby John Herron School of Art to sell their creations During the 1960's, the Talbott area became associated with peace activists and bohemians, as well as artists. By then, the movie house had become the Black Curtain Dinner Theatre. Along with the adjacent Hummingbird Caf , the dinner theatre was popular through much of the 1970's. Today the Talbott Street building is an alternative entertainment venue that opened in the former theatre at 2145 N. Talbott Street in 2002. However, the area has been known as a welcoming one for the gay community since the early 1980's. The current nightclub, which has a Studio 54 style of dance floor, replaced the other gay clubs at the same site. Over the past two decades the Talbott Street Art Fair has exploded in popularity. Today hundreds of painters, potters, and other artists sell everything from ceramics to macram wall hangings at the June festival that invariably draws elbow-to-elbow crowds. Four blocks of Talbott Street are closed to traffic for the annual fair, which is now one of the largest in the city. And, yes, the Talbott area is still considered a bit bohemian.

Talbott Street

I will never go back.....the DJ on the night of 5/24 absolutely SUCKED! I've heard better music at a funeral. Not to mention the bartenders tried to rip me off and over charge me two different times. But back to the DJ, who thought he was bringing down the house. He brought it down alright. It was like a mad exodus watching people leave that place. There were moments that I was caught standing there in front of my gf and we were like ""what it in God's name is he playing"" It sounded like a 80's soundtrack at some moments. Left us standing and looking around. I was so enraged on the way home, my gf was avoiding me at all costs. Get new bartenders who show respect and you have GOT to get a new DJ in there. He was awful. Print THAT!!!!!
