One day left


One year after its sister location shut down, workers at Starters Pub in Lower Saucon Township say the sports bar is going out of business after Sunday.

The Lower Saucon Township pub has been in the Lehigh Valley for the last 14 years, but its doors will shut for good after service Sunday night.

Workers say they were told over the last few days, but were given no explanation for the sudden closure.

Starters Riverport ceased operations last February.


The Starters Pub on Route 378 was in the news in August of last year when a woman, Amanda Hein, went into the establishment's bathroom, delivered a baby boy, and then allegedly stuffed the baby's body into a toilet.

A cleaning crew found the body the next day.

One Starters location remains in operation at the Bethlehem Golf Club.
