For over sixty years, Club 404 has been a landmark on Broadway. But owner Jerry Feld -- who bought the place before he was legally old enough to have a liquor license -- has issued last call for the legendary dive, which I profiled here three years ago, when it looked like the place was about to redeveloped.
That deal fell through, but now it's official: Club 404's last day will be Thursday, December 15 -- but the official "Last Hurrah" party will start at 4 p.m. Sunday. "Please stop by to have a drink and say goodbye to a piece of Denver history," urges the bar's Facebook page.
We'll be there. And in the meantime, raise a glass and join us in toasting the great run of Jerry Feld's Club 404.
