Since the the change in ownership at Pharmacy Bar back in early May we haven’t heard many updates besides a possible name change. Now a reader hears they are closing for good. On their facebook page they posted yesterday morning:
“Sometime within the last 24 hours somebody decided it was a good idea to steal the vinyl Pharmacy Bar that hung outside the window of the bar.
Whoever that person was I guess felt they were entitled to take it because they heard about the Closing Party we’re having. The problem is, one of our regular customers — who also happens to have been a frequent customer of original Pharmacy Bar owner Kristaps Kreslin’s bar of the same name in Latvia — has been asking for that sign for months.
So if anyone hears, sees or knows anything about the missing sign we would greatly appreciate whatever information you may have. And to the person(s) responsible: if you return it we promise not to press charges.”
