Is Club Orpheus still open?

I wonder about this place every time I drive by.

Club Orpheus used to be the two-level Goth club on the outskirts of Little Italy that bit its thumb at the neighborhood residents who wanted it closed.

Eventually, I thought the residents got their way and the club was shuttered. 

Maybe I was wrong.  

I recently saw a listing online advertising Orpheus' New Years Eve 2007 party.

Anybody know anything about this?

I work with a guy who frequents and occassionally dj's at Orpheus. Haven't been there myself, but according to him it's very popular with the gay community (he's bisexual).

It would be impossible to tell from the outside...the Club Orpheus has never looked open, as best as I can tell.

They have two goth nights: Friday and Saturday. Good Baltimore Ascension and Orpheus and you'll find their website.

Ahem, I mean: Google Baltimore Ascension and Orpheus and you'll find their website.

Yes, the club is alive and well and has been for quite some time... I am the promoter for friday nights there which is a goth-oriented night... Saturdays are Rapture at Hope that you all come out and have some fun with us! :)
