Petra’s Closes its Doors Permanently

Petra’s was one of the few venues that could hold an active crowd with great conversations and laughs. It’s beautifully adorned venue had a friendly familiar feel with guests and artists alike gracing the dance floor and experiencing the multiple talents that performed center stage. Everyone was friendly and inviting.

When venues this well managed and maintained,  It is always sad to announce they are closing their doors. The news came as a shock to The SL Enquirer as well as many others who visited Petra’s and had the opportunity to meet the woman behind it all; Petra Steele. The venue will be missed but most of all Petra Steele’s presence.

On behalf of the SL Enquirer and fans of Petra’s. Ms. Steele thank you for your hard work, passion and energy in supporting music and entertainment in Second Life and being a part of this amazing, creative virtual platform. We wish you the very best in your treatment and recovery.

Dear Staff, Artists & Friends of PETRA's,

It is with a tremendous sense of sadness that I write to inform you that as of  5:00pm today, Friday, June 22, PETRA's closed its doors permanently.

As many of you know, I have been ill for some time and have just received word about a diagnosis, the treatment for which will interfere with my being able to run the club.

Of all the venues I have owned, PETRA's is the one I've had the greatest pride in and affection for.  It saddens me to have to say goodbye to it and all the great times and great music we have packed into the 8 months of its existence.

My gratitude to each and every one of you for being a part of the wonderful adventure that PETRA's was for me and, I hope for all of you.  


Petra Steele
