(And we're back.)
Quick recap: after opening in March, Strongbox closed in June for the summer "to complete renovations and tweaking of [their] product."
Some wondered what kind of tweaks they were planning. Maybe they would make some changes to adjust to economy and the more low-key direction of nightlife? Maybe they'd try to do something to make the place a little more accessible?
The grand re-opening teaser:
"Strongbox - Experience the premier bottle-service lounge and nightclub as it reveals brand new state-of-the-art audio/visual technology and luxurious decor that will take exclusive clientele to the next level of Philadelphia nightlife."
Still bottle-service. Still luxurious. Still exclusive.
