Indigo, Zeno’s, Pickles, Chumley’s to Close on State Patty’s Day

The number of bars that will remain open this Saturday is dwindling, as Onward State has learned that five more establishments intend to close on State Patty’s Day.

According to multiple members of the Hotel State College wait staff, Indigo, Zeno’s, the Zeno’s bottle shop, Pickles, and Chumley’s will be closed on March 1.

The news comes on the heels of announcements that multiple other downtown bars will be closed during the 24-hour period. Per its owner J.R. Mangan, Cafe 210 West will be closed on the holiday, as will Levels, Lion’s Den, The Brewery, Phyrst, and Local Whiskey.

This is the second year that Penn State is offering to pay bars to close on State Patty’s Day. Last year, the university used revenues in campus parking operations on previous State Patty’s Days to cover the incentive, according to Penn State Spokesman Bill Zimmerman. This year, the university is offering a four-tier compensation system to individual establishments based on occupancy levels:

— Businesses with occupancy of 350 or more: $7,500

— Businesses with occupancy from 250-349: $6,000

— Businesses with occupancy from 100-249: $5,000

— Businesses with occupancy levels less than 100: $2,500

In addition to the bar closures, a no-guest policy has been instituted for sorority floors during State Patty’s Day weekend, and some apartment buildings will not allow any parties.
