Dallas Voice has confirmed that Marty Hershner, owner of the Tin Room on Hudnall Street in Oak Lawn, has died. We have few details at this point, but Hershner reportedly was found in his bed at about 8 p.m. Tuesday. Hershner had recently opened a second gay bar, the Drama Room on Cedar Springs Road. He also planned to try to open a bar at the site of Bill’s Hideaway on Buena Vista Street, which closed last year. We’ll have more details on Hershner’s death as soon as they become available. Look for a full obituary in Friday’s Dallas Voice.
