Nearly a year of construction and renovation come to an end this Valentine’s Day weekend when Torrent Lounge, the nightclub replacing the Recher Theatre on York Road in Towson, opens to provide a thumping heartbeat for Baltimore’s electronic music scene.

“There hasn’t been anything like this in Maryland, ever, from what we’ve been told by people in the scene,” Brian Recher, co-owner of Torrent Lounge, said.

The Recher family has owned the former Towson Theatre space since 1959, Brian Recher said. He and his brother obtained a liquor license and changed the space from a pool hall to a rock venue 17 years ago. The Recher enjoyed a strong run as one of the area’s premier music venues, but were eventually muscled out of the scene by larger competitors.
