Moct closing, new eatery to open

After nine years, Moct, 240 E. Pittsburgh Ave., has sold the business to a new proprietor. 

The bar and club was opened by two brothers, Sini and Nebi Torbica, in July 2004 with a vision to create an industrial-style warehouse club. At the time it was the only venue of its kind.

Guy Lamberg purchased the business and is expected to open a new restaurant as well as run a catering business from the space. The new restaurant is called Prodigal and is due to open in June.

A farwell party will be held at MOCT on Saturday, April 27 featuring DJs including DJs- Dion (D-on) Roldan, Christopher (Why-B) Gerard and Tyrone (DJ Bizzon) Miller.

Personally, I wish Nebi and Sini the best of luck in their new adventures. (Sini got a job with the Department of Defense and Nebi is finishing up a new app.) They really did a lot for the neighborhood – threw some great parties and believed in the area during its early stages of development.

35524 I never really got the vibe of Moct, but I always appreciated what they did for the community. And upon reflection, for a bar I didn't get, I was still there more frequently than I would have thought. A real boundary breaker, I'm disappointed to see them go.

I live near MOCT and I couldn't be happier. This place has been a noise nuisance for years!

Sad to see Moct go. Hadn't been there in a while, but it was one of the few clubs that I always liked going to. Seems like there are fewer and fewer clubs in this town anymore. That or I'm just getting old...
