UPDATE: Backstreet is not closing! Apparently there was some dispute between Moses and Murray and Moses is taking back control of the bar and is going to continue to run it as Backstreet. According to my source "Backstreet will continue to be open and will be better than ever." It WILL be open this Saturday.
So basically the management is just changing. I'm happy because I love this bar. I'm not taking sides in this, I just want to see a thriving gay nightlife in Detroit. I don't know exactly what the dispute was about, I want to stay out of it. I continue to support Menjo's, I think they are doing a fine job there. Backstreet and Menjo's are two of my favorite bars and I want to see them both continue and thrive in the future. As far as the personalities involved, both have been kind to me and I'm remaining neutral like Switzerland!
