Philadelphia, June 16, 2011: The Felton Supper Club will remain padlocked and closed, and its liquor license will remain in safekeeping with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board for one year. The District Attorney’s Public Nuisance Task Force filed a 6-611 action under the Pennsylvania Liquor Code in order to close down the club. The owner of the real estate and the holders of the liquor license agreed to the Commonwealth’s request for relief today. The club, located on Rising Sun Avenue, has been at the center of numerous complaints and problems over the past year, the latest incident occurring on May 22, 2011 when nine people were shot outside the club at closing time. On May 24, 2011 the City’s Department of Licenses and Inspections revoked the Felton Supper Club’s amusement, business privilege, and occupancy licenses. The action taken today by ADA Beth Grossman, Chief of the Public Nuisance Task Force, was necessary because an appeal was filed to challenge L&I’s license revocations and cease operations order.
