Felton Supper Club loses liquor license for one year

    Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced this afternoon the latest action taken against the Felton Supper Club after nine people were shot outside the club last month. Mayor Michael Nutter vowed to close the Feltonville club, as last month’s incident was not the first.

    “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,” Williams writes on his blog. “The owner of the real estate and the holders of the liquor license agreed to the Commonwealth’s request for relief today.”

    The club was shut down just days after the shooting, and today’s action was a response to an appeal by the club owners.
