Another day, another Tempe spot bites the dust. This time it's the Public House on Sixth, the party-happy bar and college kid hangout just off Mill Avenue next door to El Hefe in Tempe.

Both places are owned by Riot Hospitality Group, which also runs El Hefes in Scottsdale and Chicago, as well as Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row. Their bar empire grew slightly smaller last week when the Public House closed for business.
