Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Couple of recent closures to let you know about, one that's more permanent than the other. First up: Mo's, the bar at 1037 Broadway, has gone dark after a two-year-plus run.

"It's been a long run and something new is always on the horizon," reads Mo's Facebook page. "Change is good and we want to thank all those that have made this small/quaint little neighborhood bar a little home away from home.We will miss seeing all our wonderful patrons. Keep in touch and we will keep you posted on new developments."

The Rex Lounge, meanwhile, previously the White House Lounge and the Foxhole before that, recently closed for renovations and will possibly re-open in the spring. The lounge opened in 2008 among the many condo complexes near Coors Field.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
