Delray Beach says goodbye to Death or Glory bar
Funky bar Death or Glory in Delray Beach served its last drinks on April 25 – which also marked its fifth anniversary – before closing its doors for good. But first there was an epic party, a “Funeral Bash” that promised to “put the fun back into the funeral”.
This is not the end of the story for the building where Death or Glory operated. The historic 1925-era house will host a revival of one of its former inhabitants, The Falcon House bar, says Death or Glory owner Annie Blake.
Blake has teamed up with Sean Inglehart, co-founder of Boynton’s popular and creative Sweetwater whiskey and small plate bar, in the vintage house’s new venture.
It’s a space Inglehart knows well – at the time he worked at the old Falcon House as a bar-back, a job that launched his hospitality career.
What is the concept of the new Falcon House? In a statement Thursday, Blake described it as “a local haunt with a sexy atmosphere, great cocktails and global street food.”

“Although a door has closed, we hasten to open a new one!” said Blake.
She has not announced an opening date.
