In March, we told you that Montclair’s hot-spot nightclub, The Diva Lounge, had sold its liquor license and was catering to a new crowd — the Bar/Bat Mitzvah market. We’re not sure how many mazel tovs were uttered in the new alcohol-free space, but that chapter in Diva history is over. The whole business has up and closed.
The entire contents of the Diva, including fixtures, furniture, kitchen equipment, (and hookahs, we presume) was auctioned off on Wednesday. According to Tom Friendly, of Watchung, NJ, he was one of more than 50 people who turned out to bid on the Diva’s contents. Friendly found some good deals on kitchen machinery for his new bar in Lehighton, PA.
The crew expected to finish dismantling the remaining fixtures and equipment that made this venue so distinctive by end of day today.
