REDDING., Calif. -

The Bell Lounge on Athens Avenue in Redding is closing.

According to workers the lounge has been in business for more than 60 years and is well known by many in the community.

It was not made clear Saturday afternoon why the business is closing, workers simply said the owners decided it was time to close.

However the lounge will be hosting a "grand closing" Saturday evening to thank their longtime patrons.

The event is expected to start around 9 p.m.
