April 13, 2014: Magnolia'a Bar served its last drink and played its last dance tune on April 4. Mag's opened in 1985 and was a popular LGBT nightclub. Special thanks to owner John Knowles for allowing the Project to help preserve the bar's history. John donated bar posters, artwork, trophies, menus, disco balls, drag queen dresses, and other artifacts that will keep Mag's memory alive. The building the bar was housed in has been sold and will be renovated into retail and apartments. Thanks for the memories.
