Cambridge Jazz Club Ryles to Close
Cambridge, MA – The Boston Globe reported on February 27th that, after more than 40 years, the venerable Ryles Jazz Club is closing its doors. According to the report, owner Gary Mitchell said he’s selling the property so that his family can focus its attention on the adjacent S&S Restaurant, which it has owned for nearly a century.
Fans of jazz and of the Ryles club can still catch the music they love at the Inman Square venue—but for how long is not clear.
“We’re still booking shows,” said Mitchell,“ adding “We’ve enjoyed every minute of it and it’s been very successful, but based on our age and our lifestyle, this is the decision we’ve made.”
Anybody out there with deep pockets and a burning passion to run a successful jazz club?
