The previous owner of the building had been operating the place under three separate names: Odelay, Thirty Fourteen and the Beetle Bar -- the upstairs bar and patio that was only available for private parties. Cleland says he and partners John Elliott and Toby Waters plan to consolidate the concept somewhat and open the Beetle Bar to customers.
Odelay will re-open this Friday at 4 p.m. and the bar will stay open until 2 a.m. nightly. Right now the partners are cleaning up the place and making Home Depot runs to make sure the space is at its best for the weekend. With Rockbar across the street closed, the three anticipate a solid late-night crowd in addition to customers just looking for good tacos on Colfax.
