The iconic Power House, the simple dive bar that's occupied the corner of Hollywood and Highland is shutting down on June 23 after nearly 60 years in business, reports LAist. Just steps from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and all of the greater action that's happened in the overall gentrification of Hollywood Blvd over the past few decades, Power House has maintained its stature as a comfortable neighborhood watering hole, staying a bit in the shadows compared to the flashier Frolic Room a few blocks away.
Apparently the owner of the business is planning to change up the concept after a renovation period, so the actual building will remain intact. But that iconic neon sign, glowing late into the nights in Hollywood, will likely fade away into the drunken memories of its regulars. Until this coming Monday, load up on one more cheap pint of beer.
