  • Crazy Horse is set to open its door in September.

An old tenant is re-opening at the location of the former Red Room.

Crazy Horse, the longtime punk rock music club, is returning to its original location, 1519 W. Main St., with a target open date of September 2014. This iteration of the venue will be for patrons 21 years of age and older. Beer and wine will be served, and according to a press release, it will pursue a liquor license when one becomes available. 

Crazy Horse has a long and convoluted history. The bar and music club first opened in the 1960s, but in 1994, it changed its name to J.D. and Friends. Then it was Terrapin Station. Then it was Red Room, which shut its doors in September 2013. 

Crazy Horse owners Wes Malvini and Eric Penney wrote in a press release that they hope to cross-promote between Crazy Horse, The Shredder and The Crux, but will not limit itself to a "particular scene or genre."
