Just a few weeks shy of its second anniversary, The 1800 Club at 34 Court St. in Auburn closed its doors permanently May 18, according to a post on the club’s Facebook page. The restaurant and live music venue was popular, but had its share of ups and downs.

An explanatory note to customers reads, in part, “we wanted to be a part of this community, but a lot of the community seemed to not want us around.”

The Buzz reached out to owner Lisa Cooper for an explanation, but did not hear back.

Burnout, working too much and not spending enough time with family are listed as contributing factors to the decision.

Other businesses that have occupied the space include No Tomatoes, Midnight Blues Club, Lavish Nightclub, House of Bacon, Naral’s and 207 American Grille.
