SIX Lounge Gets Deep-Sixed

The Web site for posh Scottsdale drinkery SIX Lounge is still up and running, but too bad we can't say the same for the club itself.

Apparently the place was locked up tight by it's landlord Gladstone Gregg at the end of last month after he got into a major spat with proprietor Randy Smith (who also runs the nearby Mickey's Hangover) over what essentially boils down to a non-payment of rent.

SIX, which debuted back in 2001, reportedly ran outta cash due to (you guessed it) a slump in business. Guess clubbers got tired of the place.

So if you're out and about in Scottsdale this weekend, be sure to hoist a martini or two in salute for this fallen nightspot.
