Stud Bar Stabilization Fund

It is with heavy hearts that we announce our departure from our 399 9th Street location, The Stud's home for the past three decades. With the future of bars and nightclubs uncertain in the time of COVID, we can't sustain the cost of the space without revenue. 

Here’s the thing, though: The Stud, the nightlife entity, is not dead. We’re still going to come back when this is over—a different space with the same lovingly outrageous vibe.

By closing the doors on our location—a place that holds memories for almost the entire city, and which survived both the AIDS and app years, as well as two tech booms and two economic busts, all with wigs a-flyin’—we’re able to survive another day, in a new Stud incarnation. Mobile Stud parties, pop-ups, appearances, and more are being investigated. Who doesn’t want the Stud serving liquor and looks at their socially distanced lesbian wedding or drag quinceanera?

Please help us by joining our weekly virtual drag show "Drag Alive" every Saturday at 6:30 pm:

And donate to and share this fundraiser where the funds we collect will be used for start-up and buildout costs at a new space and to support the newly social-distanced reality of that in the interim.
