Sadly, This Iconic Colorado Bar/Restaurant Is Officially Closed After 20 Years
We're sad to report that Colorado has said goodbye to a local bar/restaurant that has been a "fan favorite" for over two decades. Here we go again...
Iconic Colorado Bar/Restaurant Closed After 20 Years
It's one thing to learn about a closing around town you have no emotional attachment to. I've written about many places with which I've had no real personal experience and just had to relay the experience through the words of those who had. When you lose a place you've had personal experiences at, and some legit core memories were made, it's certainly tougher. Why so many popular places that we love continue to go out of business, especially at the rate we've seen in 2022 and again in 2023, will always make us wonder. Sadly, another very popular local bar/restaurant announced that it has officially closed down permanently this past weekend.
Blake Street Tavern In Denver, Colorado Is Closed Permanently
After opening in 2003 and being a favorite stop for many heading to or from a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field, the award-winning Blake Street Tavern announced this past weekend was their final, and have now closed for good. After one last Rockies Opening Day and homestand this past weekend, they posted the following on their farewell message filled with some amazing pictures from over the last 20 years on their official Instagram page.
Like seen in the pix above, many great memories were made there in the past 20 years. Personally, I'll never forget watching the Rockies sweep the Diamondbacks to win their first National League Pennant and moving on to the world series. That place exploded! What a night! Thank you to the staff of Blake street tavern for that memory, and many amazing years of other memories that we'll never forget. Cheers.
