While the club was closed under a nuisance order from the district attorney's office, it underwent a bit of a makeover. They're also boasting new DJs and entertainers.

The newsletter also mentioned that Backstreet is hiring for all positions. Those interested should contact

The city's largest gay dance club was raided and temporarily closed in early September as a public nuisance, the result of a months-long undercover police operation. Trice was arrested and charged with aggravated gambling promotion, storage of liquor for sale, possession of gambling device, and unlawful sale of alcohol.
