McFadden's Philly, the popular Northern Liberties bar, plans to abruptly close at the end of the day Thursday.

The bar, located along North 3rd Street in the Northern Liberties section of the city, has been pouring beers and Irish whiskey shots for 14 years.

The bar has been a popular party spot — hosting guest bartenders, happy hours and holiday events like Running of the Santas and McPatty Fest.
