Guy Harvey's Perfect Spot has gone under in Stapleton

As it turns out, the Shops at Northfield Stapleton were not the perfect spot for Guy Harvey, the famous artist and conservationist. Earlier this month, Guy Harvey's Perfect Spot, a bar/restaurant/retail store decked out in fishing decor, closed less than a year after it opened in the outdoor mall.

But at least it lasted longer than another nautical-themed restaurant in the development, Wyland's Ocean Blue, which took a dive after just seven months.

Although Guy Harvey already owned a string of successful Guy Harvey Island Grill restaurants in the South, this was the first Perfect Spot -- and as far as we can tell, it may well be the last.
