1971 - Aquarius Lounge burns

Aquarius Lounge, 124 Lynnway, Lynn, MA

Jim Zipper, a Lynn resident and activist reminisces in a 1983 interview, “There used to be a beautiful gay bar on the Lynnway named the Aquarius . . . and it was beautiful.” I mean, it was a place that burned down in the ocean. Beautiful, big. A place like some of the places up on Route 1. I mean, it was really beautiful. It was a palace, and they had gays and lesbians from all over, and it was wild.” It was a beautiful place. Only lasted about two years, and it burnt down.”The Aquarius Lounge operated 1969 to 1971. The fire was of suspicious origin.
