Porpoise Pub was opened in 1961, according to its website. It was first famous as a beer garden with a large swim tank for a porpoise....
Over the years, according to its website, the pub played host to several rock bands, including Foghat and Quiet Riot. It also frequently hosted fundraisers. An American Heart Association event was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, according to the bar's Facebook page.
UPDATE: I have a few pictures of this classic establishment.
Space Invaders above the bar.
Skeletal ghost with top hat.
One of several hanging devils or skeletons.
Indoor biker-bar firepit, oddly enough not the source of the fire that burned the place down.
