Denver will lose a familiar face this week when Club 404, a classic dive bar at 404 Broadway, changes hands after sixty years under owner Jerry Feld.
To commemorate the end of the era, Cafe Society will be popping in Club 404 over the next few days, capturing moments and sharing stories with those who have made their best memories at this fine establishment.
Do you have a story about a night (or day) spent drinking at Club 404? Are you a former employee? Did you hold a special event there? We'd love to read about it, and share with Cafe Society readers.
Please submit your stories and memories to Britt.Chester@westword.com if you would like to be included. Or feel free to just post a memory below.
And fair warning: Last call at Club 404 will be Wednesday, December 14, when family, friends and fans gather for a last party. (Sunday's "Last Hurrah" was so much fun the bar decided to say goodbye again.) On December 15, the locks will be changed, and the new owners will start making some changes -- not many, they promise. Club 404 is slated to reopen by January.
