In a shocking announcement, Sisters Nightclub, the only lesbian bar in Philadelphia, has announced that it is no longer open for business.
General Manager Denise Cohen had this to say via her Facebook page:
“How do you say goodbye to something that has been part of your life for so long – a dream – a passion – a love … I have worked within the Gay & Lesbian community for 24 years with 17 of them at Sisters … today with much sadness no actually with a broken heart I am announcing that Sisters Nightclub is no longer in business.
I was informed by the owners this morning – I told them I would prepare something to post on our social media outlets and website but now I find myself struggling to convey a professional statement versus a personal statement.
I want to thank each and every employee that has been on my staff as well as all of the wonderful DJ’s and performers that have graced our stages and of course a Thank you to our community – the customers who have been there for all these years – many so very loyal and appreciative through this horrible economy.
It was an amazing 17 years and we thank you for all of your support.”
