More History at drakkar91

A gem - I loved this place.  One of my all-time favorites.  Opened in 1980, closed in 2003.  Shortly after closing, the entire complex was demolished for development.  During the early 1990's, I visited Rehoboth every summer.  Another fun spot for dancing (also long gone), was the Strand (I recall it being on the main strip downtown).

Great article about the history is here, and another about the decision to close is here.
"...According to Renegade owner Glen Thompson, it was packed from it's opening night on May 7th, 1980..."
