The Continental Lounge was later known as the Penguin Lounge (ca. 1970), and renamed The Downtown Lounge, in December 1979. As the Downtown Lounge, the venue had a brief life as a punk rock venue until a major building fire on 25 October 1981. The Graymore Hotel building was demolished in October 1985.
