Purdy Lounge in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood will hold its last last call on February 8.

The popular bar and lounge, at 1811 Purdy Avenue, announced on Facebook that it would be closing early next year after operating for about 20 years.

“There is a lot you can do in 20 years, begin a new century, build a new business, develop a neighborhood, make new friends, strengthen bonds, dance, celebrate, cry, fall in love, and drink a few happy meals,” the post reads.

Residents, including the Sunset Harbour Neighborhood Association, have wanted the city to change Purdy’s closing time to 2 a.m. from 5 a.m. for nearly a decade, the Miami New Times reported last year.

Since it opened in 2000, the neighborhood has been developed into a high-end area with luxury condos, retail and office space. Last year, developer Scott Robins and former Miami Beach mayor Philip Levine sold a seven-building, 61,400-square-foot portfolio in Sunset Harbour for nearly $69 million to a North Carolina investment firm. Tenants there include Lucali, Flywheel Sports, Barry’s Bootcamp, Panther Coffee, Icebox Café and Stiltsville.

Brokerages such as Brown Harris Stevens and One Sotheby’s International Realty have opened offices in the neighborhood.

In October, the Miami Herald reported that Pubbelly, which opened in Sunset Harbour in 2011, had closed over the summer for repairs and decided not to reopen.
