Chez Ms

in Bars, Clubs, and Discos

Chez Ms, a lesbian women’s bar, opened at 1510 Prospect Avenue in 1973. Chez Ms was located inside the Advance Building below The Change, a gay men’s bar, and operated under the same management. Roughly a year after opening, financial troubles plaguing The Change and ongoing conflicts between the bar’s management and staff contributed to Chez Ms’ closure in 1974.

Advance Building ca. 1965, Cleveland Memory Project.
