Club 219 was a real, popular gay bar in Milwaukee.
According to an extensive report from the Wisconsin LGBT History Project, Club 219 truly got its start in January 1981, cementing itself as the gay club to be at in Milwaukee until it was eventually eclipsed by another gay bar, La Cage Aux Folles, in 1984. Club 219 became known as the second-best gay bar, after La Cage. However, the club was still lively, and loved by patrons. Unfortunately, Club 219 became infamous after Dahmer became a regular in 1991.
