Opening/Closing

Rogue West to Close on Wednesday


Rogue West, one of the last true punk dives on the west-side, is closing this Wednesday, according to this post on the venue's official Facebook page:

It's with great sadness that I announce that after seven years of amazing live music and wacky behavior, the best little dive bar in town is closing its doors. We have fallen victim to an absurd personal injury lawsuit against us and must surrender our business. We will open from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Wednesday. Please stop by and mourn the passing of a legendary establishment. It has been our honor to serve you.

Up on the Sun will bring you more info on the closing as it becomes available.
