Campagna closes for remodeling and will reopen as My Other Bar

The address on Sixth Avenue and Downing that's home to Campagna is one of Denver's cursed locations, losing a slew of restaurants over the course of the last few decades. Owner Alex Gurevich is determined to make it work, though -- even if that means ditching his salumeria and pizzeria in the process.

Campagna hasn't served a meal since late December, and when we stopped by today, a man hanging a sign out front confirmed that though ownership hasn't changed, the concept certainly has.

According to a voicemail message, the place took an extended holiday sabbatical to complete some "much-needed renovations." When it reopens, though, it will no longer be just a pizza and salumi place. Instead, according to Campagna's Facebook page, the restaurant is being retooled as a neighborhood bar, complete with a new name. When it reopens, it will be My Other Bar, and while wood-fired pizza will still be available, it won't be the focus.

So when will the changes be completed? That same voicemail says My Other Bar was slated to reopen on January 13, but as of today, it's definitely still undergoing construction Signage out front says it will reopen before the end of January.

And they should have stayed closed- same horrible menu with exception of a hamburger and a few munchies. Bar is cool and the chairs are better but they aren't getting the neighborhood. They can't compete with Table 6 or Fruition so make it a neighborhood eats place- hamburgers, wings, salads etc. Basic grab and go for the movie goer. Wouldn't recommend it for your stomach or your wallet!

Also doesn't 'my other bar' sound like what the owners of MBB would call their 2nd place? That's what I figured this was when I saw the sign.

What are the biggest restaurant black holes in the city? That one and the one on 2nd and Josephine (currently Aria) are the two that come immediately to mind but I know there are others.

250 Steele St.

Ondo's has been doing well for a while, but before that there was French 250, El Torro, Jack's on Steele, Agave Underground, and of course, the venerable Bistro Adde Brewster.The other space (vacant now?) has been Tambien and Sketch most recently. I think it's fair to refer to the entirety of Cherry Creek North as a "restaurant black hole" now.

Campangna never worked for a second.  I went there a few times out of desperation, and I felt badly for the staff.  Hopefully it will be more successful as a bar.  The 'hood could use a watering hole other than Don's.
