The Cellar was a local night club in Port Charles, New York from 2003-2004.

History

The Cellar/Flynn's Club was located at 324 Wharf Street (beneath Kelly's), Port Charles, NY. Carly Benson, proprietor. Opened February 14, 2003.

Rekindled night club created from the remnants of "The Flynn’s Club", a speakeasy that originally opened New Years Eve 1926. Flynn’s was owned by Catherine Flynn, wife of mobster Marco Flynn and the grandmother of Faith Rosco.

It was only open for a few hours because at 12:01 A.M. on opening night, a close friend and associate was killed in the club in a mob hit. Marco retaliated that night, but was arrested. He spent the rest of his life in prison. Catherine never had the heart to reopen, and had it boarded up.

On New Year's Eve 2002, Carly and Ric Lansing discovered the speakeasy bricked off in the basement of Kelly's Diner when they were scouting for a location for her club. Catherine, now an old woman who had been living in an apartment across the street, told Carly and Ric the club's history when she observed them breaking through the brick wall. Employees have included Courtney Matthews as hostess.

In November 2003, Faith Rosco claimed ownership of the club stating that though Kelly’s Diner and The Cellar occupied the same building, they always had split deeds and while Luke and Bobbie Spencer owned Kelly's, The Cellar was rightfully Faith’s property by way of inheritance from Catherine.

In May 2004, Carly regained control of the club when Justus Ward discovered that Faith’s claim on the property was invalid. Just prior to her hospitalization in Shadybrook in 2005, she closed the club until she was well again. After recovering, she opted to keep The Cellar closed permanently, stating that it took too much time and money to run.

In April 2007, Sonny and Jason begin to consider using The Cellar as a place to hide their shipments, as The Cellar was vacant at the time. Sonny and Jason were soon ambushed by Lorenzo Alcazar's hired thugs and Maxie Jones was held hostage and saved by Cooper Barrett.
