Philip's Continental Lounge, better known as Phil's among Richmond students, will be forced to relocate when its lease expires on June 30, 2011. Phil's restaurant and bar has been located at 5704 Grove Ave. in the Shops at Libbie & Grove for over 72 years. When Kyle Measell and his wife took ownership of Phil's eight years ago, they introduced Thursday night karaoke, which exploded in popularity among students. Measell said he would be sorry to make the move, but was thankful for the continued support from Richmond's student body.
