RED ALERT! - Trouble At The Red Lion Tavern

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

What's in the holy hell is going on at The Red Lion!? There is a black on white sign hanging on the door that reads "Closed Until Further Notice."

The atrocity was discovered last night around 9pm by intrepid man-on-the-street and resident Silverlakian, "J," who prefers to remain anonymous during this trying time.

Here's what we know: The lights are off. The gates are closed. The phone just rings and rings. And "J's" intern did not show up to work today. (This may not be related).

If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of the beer garden PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT!! Time is running out... It's almost sundown.

Update: I just spoke to a rep who said they were doing some "upgrades and renovations" to get the joint code-friendly -- stair repair, new taps, that sort of thing. He assured me that they would be open tomorrow at 5pm.
