Grant Street May Relocate

Lafayette, La.’s 750-capacity Grant Street Dancehall will shut its doors after 25 years following a lease dispute with its landlord.

The lease expires December 31st but the hall’s final show was on Christmas.

Owner Don Kight said the venue may move to a new space in Iberia Parish, which is about 15 minutes from Lafayette.

“We haven’t finalized yet, but it looks very promising,” Kight told Pollstar.

He added that an unidentified corporate sponsor may purchase the “Grant Street Dancehall” moniker.

More details are to be announced in the coming weeks.
