The Amsterdam in St. Petersburg will close this weekend, the bar's owners recently announced on its Facebook page.

The beer and wine bar at 1049 Central Ave. opened in late 2013 and is known for its live music performances.

"Closing the doors means opening new ones," owners John Cullen and Zoie Torres wrote on Facebook. "We've had some great music shows, art shows and community events. Zoie and I still plan on booking/promoting live music, art shows and community events at other venues."

Cullen and Torres thanked the St. Petersburg Police Department for "being so cool" when "the people across the street" reported noise complaints.

Local bands Jordan Esker & the Hundred Percent, House of I and the Jackettes will perform at the Amsterdam's final show Saturday night starting at 8 p.m.

There will be a public liquidation sale from Sunday through June 15.
