Sorry, ladies - Sisters has closed. What was arguably Philadelphia’s only lesbian-focused dance club announced yesterday that after 17 years, its doors were shuttered, effective immediately. Former Sisters communications manager Timaree Schmit told Philadelphia Daily News that she had no warning about the closure and no firm idea of why it happened so suddenly, though she did note that overall business had been lagging.
Also down for the count is Mission Grill, the tequila-happy cantina at 19th and Arch. The Insider spoke with Brian Harrington - one of the partners behind the bar - who could offer no reason for the termination other than “it’s run its course.”
