Strongbox Holds Firm, Reveals Re-Opening "Tweaks"

(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?

Um, no.

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.

Good luck.

I went here Saturday and it was totally dead! There were less than a dozen people there from like 12-1:30am. Finally, we left and went to PULSE.

Wow! This place sounds like the biggest tool factory since The Mansion.
