Club Hippo’s website accurately describes the Mt. Vernon bar as a “cornerstone in the gay and lesbian community in Baltimore.” By the end of the year, it’s slated to become a CVS.
The Baltimore Brew broke the story that longtime owner Chuck Bowers was in negotiations to turn the nightclub he has owned since 1972 into a CVS. A statement provided to Baltimore Business Journal and the Baltimore Sun on Monday confirmed the news and said that the Hippo will close in the fall.
Located at Eager and Charles Sts., the club’s motto has been “Where everyone is welcome.” The big dance floor has always helped keep this true. Last week, the club posted an announcement that it’s planning the “party of the year” in August, serving a reminder that it’s not a drug store yet.
