Openings and Closings

Gary Lee's Motor Club and Grub going in at 176 South Broadway

This old garage space looks shuttered now, but it's the future home of a new restaurant: Gary Lee's Motor Club and Grub.

And while we're guessing the opening is still a ways off -- a deserted car lot flanks the front of the building and will require some serious cleanup -- the spot has applied for a liquor license. It goes before the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses on Monday, July 11.

As we hear of more details about what the eatery has in store, we'll keep you posted.
