    arrive at/in

    When she arrived at the pub, it was already closed.
    When she arrived in the pub, it was already closed.

    Is the second sentence correct? Is the preposition "in" possible there? And if so, do the sentences mean the same?
    If it's not too much trouble to you, could you please correct any errors I might have made in this post?

    Re: arrive at/in

    No, 'in' is not natural there. But it would mean the same if someone said it.
