Perhaps one of the oddest announcements leaving so many details out? "Krave Massive has been sold, according to former owner Kelly Murphy," Las Vegas Weekly reports. Apparently no details on who bought it, the selling price or when it will reopen. Even staff at the gay nightclub don't have details about the sale.
The Nevada Department of Taxation shut the nightclub down on Aug. 30, right before the busy Labor Day weekend and Pride, after discovering that it didn't have a sales tax permit. Krave, which touted itself as the world's largest gay nightclub, opened June 15 with just three bars after massive delays hindered a planned New Year's Eve opening at Neonopolis. The original Krave at the Miracle Mile Shops closed last October. More details on the Krave closing can be found here and here.
Downtown Project, the investment arm of Zappos head honcho Tony Hsieh that has a minority interest in Krave, was said to be in negotiations to take over full ownership of the nightclub.
Apparently Murphy plans to retain ownership of Drink & Drag, the bar and bowling alley with a cast of drag queens running the show just downstairs from Krave.
Developing. As always, the Eater Vegas tipline is open.
