The Westbury Is Closing Its Doors For Good

You may have noticed that The Westbury has been closed the past couple of weeks, but a message posted on its Facebook page this weekend explains that the historic Philly bar will never open again.

It all started, Philebrity reports, “when a fire on the 9th floor of the [Parker] hotel occurred on October 21st, it revealed a variety of L & I code violations that resulted in both buildings being shuttered” for what some thought would be a short amount of time. But sadly, that wasn’t to be.
