After three straight months of rebuilding and remodeling following a major fire, the Blooze Bar is scheduled to reopen its doors to local music lovers and daydrinkers in a couple weeks.
The interior of the North Phoenix bar and live music venue was almost totally destroyed by a massive fire back in late June that was sparked off by "electrical issues." Blooze Bar owner Tumbleweed and his wife Alyana Griffith didn't just sit around crying in their beers, however, and spent the summer returning their place to its former glory.
They also got plenty of assistance from local bands like Whiskey Six and Razer, who were regulars on the Blooze Bar stage and helped organize several benefits to raise funds for its restoration. Said bands will also participate in the three-day "grand re-opening" party that's scheduled to take place during the weekend of October 15.
