Readers: Gabor's is closing? Noooooooooooooo!!!
The news broke yesterday that Gabor's, the beloved joint on East Thirteenth, will close a few months from now to make way for the Marion Street Tavern, a new bar by Sam Roots, who owns the Providence Tavern in Edgewater. "I don't want to give too much away right now," Roots told Lori Midson, "but I can tell you that we're going to completely redo the space and make it a really cool old-style neighborhood saloon with a menu that's similar to Providence Tavern, and we'll also have some really good draft beers that will be affordable."
Gabor's could be issuing last call soon.
The reaction was swift...and loud.
Said Nate: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Cried Brit: "Nooooooooooooooooo!"
Coco put their feelings into words:
Well, this sounds like another horrible idea by a person who knows nothing about the neighborhood they just bought into. Sad but not surprised to see Gabor's go. It's only a matter of time before all of Denver's beautiful urban history is white-washed by subrubanite idealists hoping to fix what isn't broken and kill all culture in the process.
What made Gabor's such a great Capitol Hill institution? And what are your best memories of the place? Post them below, or join the heated conversation about Gabor's already under way here.
