SAN DIEGO -- Amid weeks of rumors and confusion, Anthology, the popular music and supper club located at 1337 India St. on the edge of Little Italy, has permanently shuttered its doors as of the start of the New Year.
A statement issued by Casey Pukl, the venue’s marketing manager said, "It is with great sadness that I send this email today to inform you that owner, Howard Berkson announced today that Anthology has officially closed its doors and will not be reopening."
Berkson declined to comment at this time.
Open over five years, the venue known for “fine tuned music and cuisine” had reached iconic status among visitors and musical artists. The venue boasted rock, jazz, blues and other musical greats, as well as comedic geniuses on its critically acclaimed and acoustic sound stage over the years.
In addition the venue often served as a site for private events and the owners also offered up the space for dozens of nonprofit fundraising events over the years.
