Longstanding Midtown Bar/Music Venue Neil's Catches Fire

Posted By on Mon, Aug 8, 2011 at 1:44 PM


Multiple media outlets (including WMC 5 TV and the Commercial Appeal) have reported that a two-alarm electrical fire broke out at the longstanding midtown Memphis nightspot and music venue Neil's Bar & Grill sometime around 4 a.m. this morning.

According to sources, the fire was devastating, and Neil's will be forced to close indefinitely to re-build and repair all damages. Luckily, however, no one appears to have been hurt in the incident.

We will have further updates on the fire and on the future of Neil's as they become available.
