I drove down Emmaus Ave. yesterday and it appears that Jelly Beans bar located at 5th and Emmaus Ave. has shut down. Anybody have any info on this?

Perhaps if it was not a eagles bar it might have survived.

Perhaps without smoking their business dropped significantly. Let's face it, neighborhood bars and smokers go hand in hand. By the way, I'm not a smoker.

Bummer. I used to do Karaoke there a long time ago. Was a nice little place.

Yes according to 69 News - http://wfmz.com/view/... - A popular South Allentown hangout didn't open for business last night, and its workers fear it's going to stay closed. Jellybeans Southside Jam on West Emmaus Avenue in Allentown is shut down. A bartender there tells 69 News the owner said that they just couldn't operate anymore. A sign on the door just says it's closed due to a "family emergency." The worker we spoke with says about 14 employees are affected. Our calls to the restaurant owner have not been returned.

I agre with you 100%

Rumor has it some narc and his wife ratted them out for still allowing smoking. I hope the jerk is happy now - he ruined it for everyone. The idiot would bring a small portable battery operated fan in the bar to blow the smoke away from him and his ugly wife.

Here's an idea, if the a-hole didn't like cigarette smoke, WHY DIDN'T HE STAY OUT OF A BAR??

I agree, the fat guy with glasses running the place didn't know his a-- from a hole in the ground when it came to running the joint.

I had a lot of good times there. Sad to see it go. I threw up on my shoes and pee'd my bed after many nights there.

Jelly Beans was a cool place to stop in for a drink. There was one creepy guy that was constantly there though. He always wore a suit coat, wore glasses, and would do laps trolling around the bar looking at girl's underwear sticking out of the back of their pants. What a cheesey creep!!!
