Mad River in Old City Closes

Posted on the Mad River web site is this note marking the closing of the Old City nightclub. The Manayunk location remains open.

The ownership of Mad River Bar & Grille Old City would like to thank it’s many loyal patrons for an amazing 8 years. We have decided to close this location. Please visit our Manayunk location at 4100 main street. Mad River Manayunk is Philadelphia’s best private party destination. Don’t forget to check out our beautiful deck. Thanks again,

the Mad River Team.

But what Old City takes away, Old City gives. Tantra Luxe Lounge has opened, replacing Prive at 246 Market Street.

UPDATE: Joe Sixpack’s newsletter reports that Mad River will reopen as Craft & Claw “with good beer and seafood…”
