The bar (1520 Arrott Street) which was closed by the DA as a nuisance, is showing signs of resurrection. You can imagine the joy that this brings to the neighborhood. Works is going on, no permits posted etc. which indicates a callous disregard for the law at the start. So what do people do? Well the contact Philly311 for help. You can follow the results here. Maybe the requirement is two murders to keep a location closed. DA where are you?

Note that there is $16,870.13 in back taxes due on the property. Thanks for the tip from JC,
This is great; there will be new jobs created (2 bartenders that can sell drugs and not have to worry about inclement weather all the while collecting welfare-a bouncer that will collect on bad drug debts-and an owner that will contribute zero tax revenue to the city) All is looking up in Philly for the city’s finances. At least all the unemployed and uneducated that hang in that area on a daily basis will have a close place to trade food stamps for liquor.

It sounds like you know from experience. You must have worked in some cheap gin-joints.
But just think –
Being so close to “The Bridge,” (letter of approval by the NWCA) as a result, the bar may get a good lunch crowd.
Good job dude!
Amazes me how many people are too stupid to recognize sarcasm. As for The Bridge I would almost guarantee not a single person affiliated with that place will enter the former Primos. Good luck to the NWCA cheerleader and their army of one.
Update on the Jolly Post tavern/Primo’s Sports Bar situation, neither Maria Sanchez or Tony Peyton have returned calls for help to their offices made on Monday. No building permits posted. LCB has not disclosed the status of the liquor license as of today. Get your bullet proof gear if you live near Frankford’s Bermuda Triangle area it looks like we will all be dodging bullets again soon.
Please enlighten me.
I know the Primo’s Sports Bar was shut down because it was considered a “nuisance bar”. However, does the law state that a bar is never to operate at that location or just the previous owners cannot operate a bar at that location?
Our office did report out about the above location, the bar does not have a liquor license, which means it will not be a bar…. The location was shut down 7yrs ago and the owner never renewed his license, and there is no current application on file for another license. Folks should not make statements that are not true, if anyone has any questions please call our office and ask for me.
[…] is the location of the former Primos Sports bar that was closed as a nuisance. That closure is only effective for a year and then the premises […]
The LCB to my knowledge has not determined that the location is unsuitable for a future liqour license but you could ask LCB if there is any new information. It would not be the first establishment operating in Frankford with out a license if it does open again. Just because the workers said they were renovating it to open as a bar is not proof of anything. But I know a little bit about the crimminals who held the liense there before from the application. On the original application one person had priors in NJ for assault o a Police officer and auto theft. I have witnessed alot of things there and have filed petetions in the past to request that those people not be granted a license.

Someone posted this on the click site:
So in contrast claims to the contrary here this post indicates there will be a liquor lic app made for a bar/resturaunt. Remember the former Jolly Post used to pretend to serve food at that location so they could stay open on Sunday mornings?
“At this point only renovations are being done. Permits are only required to do electrical and plumbing work or changing the floor plan. L&I is scheduled to come and inspect the kitchen area when the work is completed. YES people imagine that… A restaurant and bar. A liquor license will not be required until business is due to open. Renovations for the APARTMENTS are nearly completed. Nothing illegal is being done. Stop pointing fingers and do your homework. Legally the ONLY people who have a right to complain about that type of establishment are residents who live within 500 feet of the property. Schools and Churches which are 200 feet also have a voice. None within that area. Please focus on the renovations and ignore the speculations. *sigh* Thank you and have a good day”.
