The Philadelphia-based entertainment company MilkBoy and the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center released the following statement on Saturday regarding MilkBoy ArtHouse, the restaurant and music venue located at 7416 Baltimore Ave.:
After spending two and a half years in College Park, MilkBoy has closed. Shows produced by The Clarice are expected to continue at this location, and additional details about future plans for this venue are forthcoming.
It has been a pleasure working with everyone at the University of Maryland and partnering with them on this unique venture. We have loved our time in College Park, the community and especially the people who became a part of our extended family. The city of College Park is a wonderful place and poised for great things ahead. We wish all our friends there—and at the university— nothing but success. At our MilkBoy locations in Philadelphia, we'll continue our mission of providing our customers with the best experience serving excellent food and drink with great entertainment.
From the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center:
From the beginning, we have aimed to add to the vibrant artistic community of Greater College Park. We feel it has always been our responsibility to be present in the community we value and create opportunities for community engagement with our Visiting Artist program. MilkBoy helped pave the way for us to do that in new and innovative ways, and we are grateful for their years of partnership. We will continue to present performing arts by national and international creative innovators and artists at this location, and we wish MilkBoy the best on its continuing ventures.
Tickets to all Live Nation shows previously booked at MilkBoy Arthouse will be honored at the events’ new locations. For more information, click here.
