Downtown nightclub Raw is closed permanently.

“Raw’s chapter is done,”owner Jim Striker said.

Striker, who is a 20-plus-year veteran of the nightclub/bar business, said he’s moving more into music management and is doing a lot of work in Atlanta now.


Some Raw regulars thought Raw would be moving to the Southside, butStriker said that’s not the case.

His son is interested in opening something on the Southside, but those plans aren’t firm,Striker said.
