Levels Nightclub Closes After Three Years

Originally published on

Just three years after replacing the Mezzanine at 420 E. College Ave., Levels Nightclub is officially closed.

A manager from Greenwich Court Apartments, which owns the Levels location, confirmed that the nightclub “already moved out.”

There have been large white “For Rent” signs hanging from Levels for weeks now, and a liquor license application is posted on the front door.

That application was made by Charles and Sharon Herlocher, owners of the famous local mustard company, but they were not immediately available for comment Monday afternoon. The Herlochers previously owned a restaurant called “The Train Station” at 420 E. College Ave.

Levels has rebranded its Facebook page, now referring to itself as Levels Entertainment Group. The nightclub’s phone number is disconnected and its website now redirects to the Facebook page.

Sources who worked closely with Levels confirmed to that the nightclub’s owners are opening a new location in Morgantown, W.V. called Mainstage Morgantown. That city is the home of West Virginia University. Those sources said that the owners had a dispute with their landlord over rent at the State College location, prompting the move.

We’ll keep you updated as information on the future of the former Levels location becomes available.
