The building is owned by Curt Sims, who once ran the Denver Buffalo Company here and, when it wound up back in his hands two years ago, tried the short-lived Cantina.
Then Stoney Jesseph and Will Trautman, who operate Stoney's, decided to try putting Krewe in that spot -- but business was far from smoking. Now the two plan to convert the vacant space into a private party area for Stoney's.
Unlike the corner spot, which has seen many bars and clubs come and go -- the Hive, the Donkey Den, Sutra and Cielo among them -- Stoney's has made itself at home in the Golden Triangle's bar scene for more than four years. Maybe combining the two addresses will finally lift the curse.
