SALT LAKE CITY -- The walls of one of Salt Lake's most popular bars came down Wednesday. Demolition began on Port O'Call near 400 South and West Temple.

In February Port O'Call closed its doors after 20 years in operation. The Shubrick Building was condemned to make way for the new federal courthouse.

More than 1,000 items from the bar were auctioned off in March.

Earlier this month the federal government reached an agreement with the owners of the bar to pay about $7.5 million for the social club and the building it occupied.
