Closed For Business: Philthy Phil's

Last night, Philthy Phil's announced its last of last calls.

After more than eight years in business, the favorite neighborhood dive bar on 16th Street closed for good due to "unforeseen circumstances."

The bar got a face lift more than a year ago with the help of Craig Citizen and a Friday night dance party, Ransom, and has since been a hot spot for DJs and party promoters.

As of the time this post was published, our calls to Phil's were unanswered, though a few resident DJs and bar regulars cited decreasing business and financial issues surrounding the bar's decision to close.

Check out our slideshow of the last Ransom, and stay tuned for more information.
