Openings and Closings

Coop de Ville, aka the Stingray, has flown the coop

Heading out for a cocktail? Don't bother with The Stingray -- or Coop De Ville at the Stingray, at it was renamed in February.

The bar closed with a blowout event that was a combination one-year anniversary/farewell party last Sunday, and today the door is locked, the voicemail box no longer taking messages.

We've put in a call to Leigh Jones, who also owns the Horseshoe Lounge, Jonesy's EatBar and Bar Car; to get the details on why Coop de Ville flew the coop.
