More details today in the Riot Act closing. Fritz Hahn at the Washington Post tell us that the space will be called Penn Social, a "social club" with games, TVs and bars.
The downstairs stage will remain but will now include live music, karaoke competitions (via District Karaoke) and "game shows," which has us intrigued certainly. It will still be open to comedians as well, good news for those who commented that they'd miss the comedy space.
As we mentioned earlier this week, it sounds as though the space is mixing the integral elements of its two brother bars: lots of games (shuffleboard, cornhole, pool, skee-ball, darts) from Rocket Bar and giant TV screens (6 ten-footers and 1 twenty-footer) from Buffalo Billiards.
Penn Social will open on July 9th.
