Club Chrome has officially closed.
Thanks to everyone who helped make Club Chrome a huge success for 8 years!
Club Chrome hosted some of the biggest parties & biggest names in Fort Worth
including Flo Rida, Plies, Ray J, Chamillionaire, Twista, Bow Wow, Zro & many
Why did Club Chrome close? Taxes. Nothing in life is certain except death & taxes. The state of
Texas ruled that we must pay 14% taxes on all the free drinks given away over the past many years. That means that every premium drink given away over the years we are paying about $1 in
past taxes plus interest. Free bottles given away are costing us over $20 each!
Multiply those numbers X the many promoters, artists & guests who were taken
care of with free drinks and the total amount due plus interest is many tens of thousands of dollars.
No matter how much I love Chrome, our wonderful staff & the Hip Hop community it
just doesnt make financial sense to remain open.
Thanks to everyone who helped contribute to Chrome's success!
