If you were a big Lavo fan, we hope you got a chance to say goodbye to the club as it’s currently configured over the weekend.

The five-year-old restaurant/club concept goes dark starting tonight for a renovation and redesign, set to reopen December 27. We’re hearing that they’re going to be expanding the restaurant and going to an ultralounge instead of a club. Which makes sense, given that Marquee and Tao are Tao Group’s twin jewels in the nightlife crown.

Besides, no matter what happens with the space, we’ll always have Joaquin Phoenix delivering the world’s most awkwardly contrived rap.
