Osteria Calabria (Plush) From Bar Rescue Has Closed

Osteria Calabria in Glennside, PA (formerly known as Plush Nightspot and eventually renamed to The O.C Bar & Bistro) closed on May 3rd, 2015.  The bar appeared on Bar Rescue in November of 2014, and they posted the following message on Facebook:
"It's the final countdown!! (insert keyboard). It is with both a heavy heart and wide eyed enthusiasm that we bid you all farewell. I want to thank EVERYONE..Friends, family, staff and guests for truly making a dream come true. Our doors at Plush close for good tonight but a new beginning is in the works. There are no words to express my gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We hope to be open in our new location by the end of summer. Its been a wild ride!! Stay tuned for updates...
TTFN." reports that they closed due to the building being sold and not due to bad business.  The bar is apparently looking for another location to reopen the bar.

The O.C. Bar & Bistro has been in business for 12 years, and it is the first bar from its season of Bar Rescue to close.  You may remember from the original update that they removed a lot of the changes installed by Bar Rescue such as covering the mural, replacing the sign and changing the name.  The Bar Rescue Update Page has been updated to show this bar as 'Closed.

    The message in the announcement is a bit mixed. Are they closing, or are they relocating (and perhaps rebranding) due (for example) to the expiration of their lease?
