The Cure Lounge had a central role in the Boston trial of the late Aaron J. Hernandez who was charged with murdering two men in the South End in 2012 after bumping into one of the victims, Daniel de Abreu, inside the nightspot.

Hernandez, a former New England Patriot who was convicted for murdering Odin L. Lloyd, was acquitted of the double murders but committed suicide in state prison on April 19.
