Shakers on Avenue to close at end of August

One of Ariapita Avenue's most popular spots, Shakers on the Avenue, is closing down after 15 years.

The establishment made the announcement on it's Facebook page, describing this as the "final summer".

The bar will be closed at the end of August.

The Facebook post states, "Hi all! We are trying/hoping to stay open for summer. Will keep you advised; thanks so much."

The owner says the closure is a result of financial reasons and also because of the country's crime situation which has been affecting the Avenue as well.
