In the vacant location underneath Morning Owl Coffeehouse, Flamingo was a high-end nightclub that opened with much fanfare in early 2011.

Though the drinks were well-made and they offered impressive performance acts and featured world-class DJs in an elegant décor and with upscale drinks, the poor location, along with the high cover charges and drink costs, helped seal an early demise.

The bar tended to cater to a younger crowd, but couldn't compete with the already popular, and cheaper, Edge Bar and Lounge on Sparks Street. It closed only 15 months later in April 2012.
