"Neil's" Demolition Begins | Arts & Culture
Demolition began Thursday on a popular Mid-town Memphis landmark.
You can see a crane dismantling Neil's Bar & Grill if you drive past the location on Madison avenue.
Back in August, a two alarm fire destroyed the bar.
The massive flames caused the roof to cave in.
While owner Neil Heinz had originally hoped to the decision was made not to rebuild.
He's opening a new restaurant on Quince.
Neil's employees are currently working at another restaurant until the new one opens.
Bulldozers are expected to work for at least several days on tearing down what was left of the fire gutted building.
