Back from the dead? Rumblings emerge of Monsterland’s return (UPDATED)


Following Saturday’s Arizona Collectors Marketplace, word has spread that Monsterland, the monster-movie-themed restaurant/night club in downtown Mesa, will reopen Aug. 24. Details are few, but updates will come via the venue’s Facebook page.

Monsterland opened in October 2011 as a sci-fi/horror prop museum, but reinvented itself quickly as a nightlife eatery and bar. Following news of the bar and grill’s closure in January, there looked to be at least two efforts to save Monsterland, but they apparently didn’t have a ghost of a chance at the time, and it closed as scheduled Jan. 19.

A post this past Wednesday via the Monsterland Facebook page said to expect an official announcement Monday.

UPDATE: Video from today’s event (hat tip to Geek News Network), below, indicates that original Monsterland co-owner Kevin Wynn will be involved, as will Marco Regalado, who owns Pop Culture Paradise in Tempe and was one of the parties trying to acquire Monsterland and keep going back in January.
