RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)–A bar that has helped bring business back to part of West Broad Street has shut down, at least temporarily.

The Republic posted on Facebook earlier today that “due to unfortunate circumstances, we will be closed for the day.”

 We sent a crew over to the bar, at the corner of Broad and North Allison Street, and found a warning posted outside from the Virginia Department of Taxation.

The posting declares that the tax commissioner has ordered the business closed due to the nonpayment of state taxes.

We are working to learn more about the situation, and will bring you an update as soon as we have more information.
