WEST TOWN — Turns out the folks behind the defunct suburban teen nightclub Zero Gravity aren't big fans of Beauty Bar's planned Halloween tribute to it.
The club, which closed last year after 21 years of sweaty teen dance parties, rose from the dead Wednesday to post a scathing message on social media, calling Beauty Bar's unauthorized tribute both "illegal" and "misleading."
"DON'T BE FOOLED BY IMITATORS. ANOTHER BAR BUSINESS IS MISLEADING PEOPLE BY ADVERTISING A ZERO GRAVITY HALLOWEEN PARTY AT THEIR LOCATION. ZERO GRAVITY HAS NO AFFILIATION WITH THE PARTY. THEY ARE USING THE NAME OF ZERO GRAVITY AS THEIR HALLOWEEN PARTY TO MISLEAD PEOPLE. WE ARE TAKING PROPER ACTIONS AGAINST THIS ILLEGAL MISLEADING ACT," the Facebook post reads.
Beauty Bar has since changed the name of the events, set for Friday through Sunday, to "Beauty Bar as suburban 90s club."
The parties won't change too much, however.
Derek Berry, events manager for Beauty Bar, wrote in an email: "We are infact very much still dressing beauty bar up, as a 90s suburban nightclub just as planned! Expect the 90s vibes, glowsticks, and fun that you expect from beauty bar on a halloween weekend. "
Berry said Zero Gravity did not threaten any legal action.
"We were proactive to take it down upon their not so friendly facebook post to our tribute," he wrote.
Zero Gravity didn't immediately return a message seeking further comment.
