Popular Rochester Bar Demolished
Ladies love Bret Michaels. Shocking, right? I found out first hand when I introduced him on stage at the Wicked Moose several years ago. The places went nuts. Bret was just one of the hundreds of performers to take the stage at the Moose. The owners scheduled a nice mix of local bands and national acts. Sadly, Rochester's music scene took a big hit when the Wicked Moose closed it's doors in March. The building is currently being demolished to make room for an apartment building.
Dooley's was the original bar on that site. It opened back in 1980 and was later known as McMurphy's.The Aquarius dance club was added in the early 90s. When Dooley's moved downtown in 2010 two Rochester businessmen claimed the site and opened the Wicked Moose.
