In Larimer Square, Open Bar isn't

When we heard that the folks behind the Jet Hotel planned to open a new bar in Larimer Square, we couldn't figure out where it would go. Troy Guard has already claimed the only remaining storefront for TAG, his restaurant that's slated to open early next year and has already swallowed up the Slim 7 space for a kitchen and private party room.

But then we spotted this sign on the entrance to Open Bar, which in January 2008 took over the spot formerly occupied by Hush, which closed soon after a patron who'd been in that club earlier in the evening opened fire at 15th and Market streets, killing one and injuring six.

Open Bar didn't even last a year. Next up: Wicked Garden.
