Punch! Bar is closed for the foreseeable future

Punch! Bar is closed, and the interior is dark with no patrons.

Downtown Champaign’s cocktail lounge Punch! Bar is closed for the foreseeable future. The liquor license is expired, and there’s no word yet on when the bar will reopen. Currently, the bartenders cannot serve delicious Punch! cocktails, so if you want to support the employees, here’s a link to the GoFundMe created for the bartenders by a friend of the staff.

I miss Punch! Bar‘s crazy good drinks, so in the meantime, let’s just look at pretty Punch! beverages we can’t drink right now.
