L&I Shuts Whiskey Dix Saloon

Last Friday evening Philadelphia Licenses and Inspections personnel locked up Whiskey Dix Saloon for allegedly operating without a current liquor license. But that wasn’t the only problem facing Whiskey Dix.

An L&I source says they tried to get in and out as fast as possible so they wouldn’t have a run-in with members of the Pagans motorcycle gang who they expected to soon show up for their weekly meeting.

Law-enforcement sources and bar insiders claim local leaders of the Pagan Nation held meetings on Thursday or Friday evenings for more than a year and that many Pagans and associates had taken to using the North Seventh Street watering hole as their unofficial clubhouse.
