Some Penn students were arrested Thursday night at a local bar.

Forty underage students were cited at The Blockley Pourhouse, located at 38th and Chestnut streets, for alleged underage drinking, according to CBS Philly. Among those students were Penn students as well as students of Drexel and Saint Joseph’s universities, according to Fox 29 News.

Four bartenders were cited for allegedly serving the underage drinkers and the bar closed for the night.

“Our policy is to scrupulously check identification for every person that walks through the door,” a statement released by The Blockley said.

According to the statement, the bar may face “severe fines, temporary closing or even a revocation of [its] liquor license.”

The Blockley will be open again Friday night, Booking Manager Chris Perella said.
