Ziggy’s, one of Winston-Salem’s largest and most famous music venues, is closing next February, according to one of its owners.

Charles Womack, the majority owner of Ziggy’s Winston Inc., said that the building’s owners, Hank Perkins and Drew Gerstmyer, decided not to renew the lease. The lease runs through the end of February.

“It’s very, very sad,” Womack said Monday. “I wanted to have a lot of fun and meet some cool musicians and make a little bit of money and enjoy myself.”
Womack, who is the publisher of Yes Weekly, is listed as the president of Ziggy’s Winston Inc. Bradford McCauley and Jay Stephens are both listed as vice presidents, according to documents with the N.C. Secretary of State. Womack said Stephens has a 24 percent stake in the company and that he and McCauley own the majority of the company.
