Prism dance club closing Nov. 9

A popular dance club at 951 Williamson St. will close for good on Nov. 9.

Prism Night Club, an LGBTQ venue, was first founded as Plan B by business partners at the time Rico Sabatini and Corey Gresen.

Sabatini has been the sole owner since reopening it under the new name, Prism, in March. In a Wisconsin State Journal article, he suggests that the business is a victim of its own success because of a more welcoming atmosphere and more night life alternatives. “Safe spaces [for the LGBTQ community] are becoming a thing of the past because in my opinion, most places — at least locally — are safe spaces. It's not really a niche anymore.”
