End of the Year Means the End for These Bars

rendering 940

Goodbye Lucy’s Hat Shop, hello CVS.

December 31st isn’t just New Year’s Eve for these bars. It also means the end of of times for The Blockley, Alfa/The Ten Six Club and Lucy’s Hat Shop. Each bar is closing for good as new development and rising rents are forcing them out.

For the Blockley, the last night is actually tonight, December 29th, when the West Philadelphia music venue will be hosting a funky farewell. Tickets are onsale for that now. The event will include several food trucks and what they’re touting as the “Everyone Orchestra.”

Lucy’s Hat Shop is going out on New Year’s Eve with a combined open bar deal with Drinker’s Tavern. Alfa is promising a jolly time for its last night.

Come January, each of these spaces will be redeveloped.
