Today's paper reports that last night was the last day of business for this 25 year old art deco watering hole and fine dining spot that is attached to the old historic Tower Theater.

  1. We were talking about that article this morning. We wish we had known, one last meal would have been nice.

    My wife commented that she can't remember a time when "The Planet" wasn't a part of the Tower District. Funny thing is that she has lived as an adult in Fresno longer than 25 years. Just shows how much of an icon it had become.

    I loved the decor. For those who had never been, the web site is still up with pictures of the exterior:

    And of course the menus:
