Moonshadow Lounge

Moonshadow Lounge
Moonshadow Lounge (a/k/a Moonshadow Night Club)

Location: 10437 Burbank Boulevard, North Hollywood, California, USA

Opened: Around 2002?

Closed: 2011

Here's how Curve described Moonshadow back in October 2009:

Owners Sharon Pfeiffer and Cindy Heberling acquired this dreamily atmospheric lounge about seven years ago and since have turned into a choice lesbian hangout of North Hollywood. Events that include Sunday brunches, weekly karaoke and Thursday night meet and greets keep the patrons rolling in. But don’t confuse MoonShadow for a snobby “it” club. Games of beer pong and darts keep the setting down to earth and welcoming.

Going LA had a nice write-up too:

Lesbian bar in the valley.
Dreaming of an eclectic gathering spot for people to enjoy each other, Sharon & Cindy brought their desire into reality with MoonShadow. They each have interesting backgrounds in business, and as Sharon put it,wish to “bring together music of all venues, interesting people, art, and fun in a safe gathering spot that will bewitch many avenues of enjoyment for you, our clientele.

E How had some good things to say as well:

L.A. Weekly named Moon Shadow the best lesbian bar in Los Angeles. The club has dancing, pool tables, outdoor seating and exhibitions of local artwork. Appropriate to its name, Moon Shadow has a comfortable, cool environment lighted in subtle purple. A DJ spins tunes on most nights, but Tuesday nights are reserved for karaoke. Moon Shadow also hosts special events.

As always, clubfly's assessment was brief and just the facts:

 North Hollywood lesbian bar with DJ, pool tables, patio, jukebox, darts and video games..

We know that Moonshadow was still around in September 2010, because it made the list of best lesbian bars in LA. This is the first time we find out that Moonshadow actually had go-go girls (!):

This night club also packs in the patrons for Sunday Brunch and Tuesday Karaoke nights. It’s considered one of the hottest lesbian clubs in Los Angeles, and certainly the Valley’s hottest locale. Live music and go-go girls are other high points.

Rumors were that this new crazy self came with new management.

We also see evidence that Moonshadow was open as of February 2011, because Moonshadow held a lesbian prom to benefit the Trevor Project on the 13th.

But by March 2011, a bar called The Other Door was at this location.
