Jon's Ale House to close

WICHITA — A year after opening, Jon's Ale House is closing.

Anthony Lynch opened the bar downtown in the former Kelly's Irish Pub space at 917 E. Douglas, which is next to the Beacon restaurant. He named it for his late friend Jon Pine.

Lynch won't discuss why the bar is closing other than to say it didn't work.

When the bar closes at midnight tonight, it will be closed for good.
