Moldy Fig Jazz Club Closed Indefinitely Due to Illness

The Moldy Fig Jazz Club at 178 Stanton St. has been closed since late November.

The Moldy Fig Jazz Club, a fledgling bar, cafe and music space that opened last summer, has closed indefinitely due to health problems of proprietor Charles Brown.

Brown’s mother, Ella, posted on the club’s Facebook page on Nov. 23 announcing a temporary closure “due to family illness.” A week later, she followed up with a post saying the club would remain shuttered “until Charles recovers from his illness and hospitalization.”

The last show on the published calendar was Nov. 22. In addition to its regularly scheduled shows, late-night jam sessions and open mic nights, the club offered a small menu of sandwiches and bar snacks, as well as games such as Scrabble and shuffleboard.

We’ve reached out to the Browns for an update; we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.

    Ella is his Mother, not his wife. She is often at The Moldy Fig and very kind. Any news?

    Thanks for the correction, the story has been updated to reflect it. We have not received any response from the Browns.
