Laguna Beach Boom Boom Room Saved


The co-owners of Laguna Beach’s historic Boom Boom Room and Coast Inn have come to an agreement with the property’s new owner, Steven Udvar-Hazy. Hazy has offered them a new one-year lease, according to an email to supporters from Fred Karger, who led a petition drive to save the fabled nightclub.

The drive collected nearly 5,000 signatures from residents and visitors, which Karger says he plans to turn in to the Laguna Beach City Council in hopes that the 1920’s property can continue to operate as the centerpiece of the town’s gay nightlife, as it has since the 50’s.
