Downtown Washington Avenue nightclub staple Rue 13 is closing its doors Saturday in what will be a low-key final night.
Owner Tommy Gray confirmed the closing, which marks the end of an era for St. Louis partying.
Rue 13, at 1311 Washington Ave., operated for 11 years.
On his Facebook page, Gray wrote: "It is official. Rue 13 is closing this Saturday. I will be making my last appearance as bartender, so you better get your (behind) down here and buy me a shot of Grand Ma! Just kidding. Come down one last time and relive some great memories with some great people."
In another posting, he wrote: "As we clean out the office at Rue, we keep finding cool stuff like Velvet menus, posters, champagne glasses. Anyone interested in a piece of STL history let me know. I will take some pics and post soon."
