After 14 years of service in Palm Harbor, Peggy O's Kitchen & Taps has lost its lease and shut its doors for good. The bar was known for hosting live music and some of the wildest nights in town, especially on St. Patrick's Day. 

But the Irish bar didn't go down without one last hoorah. Last week Peggy O's held a final super bash, to celebrate its great run in Palm Harbor. 

Owner Tamara Helms told the Tampa Bay Times that the closing is bittersweet. "I love Palm Harbor, and I helped with all the downtown events and relandscaping down here as part of the Merchants Association... So, of course, I'm going to miss it, but I'm ready to move on," she told the Times.

The bar is hosting an auction on Wednesday, July 24, so that former customers can take home memorabilia to let the pub live on in their homes. More to come on the time of the auction in the coming weeks.
