Have the 'Lights' in Muskego Gone Out?

Teen club opened in early spring, but closed for the season just as school was letting out.

One of our readers prompted me to check into what ever happened to the new teen club that opened in late March, call "Lights."

Our tour of the inside showed a lot of work put into the facility, which was to target kids in late middle school up to the age of 18.  Cosmetic upgrades as well as a state of the art security system were just a few of the things that owner Ed Stawski said would attract the age group and satisfy parents' concerns about safety.

However, as school was drawing to a close, a note posted on the night club's Facebook page stated that they were going to close for the summer, prompting fans to question the move, obviously disappointed.

"Huh?? That would be your BUSIEST TIME! I can help ya fill that place," said one fan.

A post to the page on Sept. 15 asked when the dance club would reopen but no answer was given.

The website for the club is now listed as 'not found' and city planners have not received any information on the business' status, either.

We attempted to reach Stawski by phone but have not had our calls returned.

First the theatre closes down... shows "CROSSROADS PG" on the marquee for several years, then a couple bars, now the teen center... it's an odd building, and would require a unique use. The parking lot and front end point away from the street, so you cant tell when there are people there. I thought it had a shot when it was the combination bar (lots of flat screen TVs to show the Brewers/Bucks), pool table room (awesome tables), and gym (hey guys, lets drink some beer and then play basketball). At first, the food was excellent, but gradually (cost-cutting?) it became cheap and borderline inedible. And I'm not sure the clientele was what the owners were looking for. It would sure be nice to have some interesting commerce in Muskego. Walmart ain't it.

I had a discussion with someone this week after a "Muskego Proud" meeting about this property and suggested that it might be an ideal location for a motel/hotel in Muskego. It's immediately off I-43 and a tall sign would be visible to traffic on I-43. City planners, are you listening???

My personal dream is to make it a community center.

We live less than a mile from here and have 4 teens that were interested in going there this summer. One major drawback we saw was they charged $12 for a cover charge. That was only the cover charge.......a bit high. I don't think I ever paid more than a $10 cover and that was with a live band playing that night. When my wife and I toured the place (a Friday night about 9pm) there were only about 8-12 kids in the place. Mr.Stawski told us he was hoping word of mouth would be his advertising. I guess that didn't work to well. Wish it would have.

I agree with Amy. I would love to see it be a ccommunuity center. Have teen nights with $5 or $6 cover and it would be important to really get the word out.
