The Chapel, a bar created inside an old Capitol Hill funeral home on Melrose Ave, has announced it will close in September in a message posted to Facebook:
With great regret, we announce that The Chapel will be closing its doors on September 3rd. Until then, we are planning 6 weeks of partying. Join us in in the farewell and say good-bye to one of Seattle’s most unique establishments!
At the end of summer 2009, we reported on the bar’s new ownership. At the time, a representative told us the bar would be stepping up its efforts to host more events.
