Like a Phoenix?

I'd been hearing disturbing rumblings about The Phoenix. Sure enough, the doors were locked on the night of July 26. The site now confirms that the jazz bar is "temporarily closed." While the 8th Street establishment is just as much of a destination for revelers as it is a listening room, it's a vital part of Kansas City's jazz and blues scene. My fingers are crossed...
