Tryst Lounge Opening Friday Night in Fitchburg
By Amanda Burke
FITCHBURG -- The Tryst Lounge, Main Street’s newest nightlife attraction, opens its doors on Friday.
“There was a void for a nightclub in the area,” said Heather Silvera, 28, who owns Tryst with her husband, Carlos. “People travel to Worcester, travel to Boston, so we’re here to fill that void.”
That void gave rise to opportunity.
The Silveras bought the former Destaré in January, she said, and built it out into a nighttime spot that will be a club on weekends, but boast a more “laid back” vibe on weekdays.
For the next three weeks, Tryst will be open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., said Silvera.
Hours of operation will ramp up beginning the first week in October when Tryst will be open to Tuesday through Saturday, and for private events on Sunday and Monday.
“It’s going to be a completely different atmosphere on the weekdays,” she said.
Silvera said customers are welcome to “BYOF,” or bring their own food, to Tryst and enjoy a cocktail from the full bar.
The Silveras are also seeking a permit so food trucks can set up in the parking lot behind Tryst, she said.
What sets Tryst apart from surrounding Fitchburg night spots is its VIP table service, available after 9 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, said Silvera.
“It’s almost like having your own private bartender,” she said.
Tryst will host DJs on the weekends, and Silvera said she plans to host acoustic musicians and live comedians when weekday hours begin.
