Embassy closed

Posted on Tue, Jun 24, 2008 at 2:41 PM

Last weekend Embassy Nightclub (1661 Argyle) closed its doors for good. According to owner Charile Ahoury, who has seen the business through various stages and names, business has been slow for quite some time.

“I’ve been around to pizza places, retail outlets, other bars and clubs,” says Ahoury. “The consensus is business died. Unfortunately it’s the reality these days. They say it’s a student town, but really students are a bonus to the city, yes they are the backbone, but what about people who live and work here?”

Currently there are no concrete plans for the prime location above the Economy Shoe Shop (1661- 1663 Argyle) and Biscuit General Store (1661 Argyle). We’ll keep you posted.
