Old City Bar Owners Pen ‘Eulogy'; Blame Drugs & Crime for Closure

Eulogy Belgian Tavern near 2nd and Chestnut streets in Philadelphia is no more.

The owners of the 15-year-old Old City bar in their own eulogy for the shuttering business cited the "current epidemic drug and crime spree" in Philadelphia.

"Everything dies baby that's a fact," the company wrote Friday in a Facebook post. "But maybe everything that dies someday comes back"

"Unfortunately, we feel the current epidemic drug and crime spree in Philadelphia has made it too difficult to safely staff and operate our business anymore so we're taking a break," the company wrote.
