Rock Island District dance club Billy Bob’s has announced they’ll be closing, at least temporarily, due to low business numbers caused by covid-19.

The bar posted the following on its Facebook last night:

One month ago when we were finally able to open our doors back up after almost 4 months of being closed due to Covid 19. We were pretty honest in reaching out to everyone and letting them know we really needed their support.

We are not sure the reason for such low numbers. Probably due to people still wanting to shelter at home and perhaps due to the District needing to close at 2am instead of 3am. Whatever the case may be at this time, we need to close our doors to save as much money as possible.

Our last day open will be this Saturday. Let’s get after it!!

We greatly appreciate your patronage over the last 15 months.
