What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

Another Avenue business closes; owner gets some nibbles

Pour out a little of that 40 for Bronze Bar, the airbrush tanning studio at 1713 S. 12th St. next to the Passyunk dollar store.

Kaput. It never even had it’s own sign
The gate hasn’t risen for weeks, and there’s a curling piece of paper taped to the window telling prospective renters to call Paul.¬†Building owner Paul Liou said the BB told him they weren’t busy enough, but that the owner had other businesses.
The last number is 2. No pranks!

He’s already gotten some interest from three people for a possible cafe, clothing store or architecture office. Liou said the new rent would tentatively be about $1,000 a month (depending on the business) for about 500 square feet. He wouldn’t say how much Bronze Bar paid but he said he gave the lady a great deal, sort of a friendship agreement. Not surprising that he’d hike the rent.

That building, incidentally, is Liou’s only one. His jobby job is as a Chinese-English interpreter, which he does in courtrooms in Philly, Atlantic City, Vineland and Delaware.
