Readers: Gabor's is closing? Noooooooooooooo!!!

The news broke yesterday that Gabor's, the beloved joint on East Thirteenth, will close a few months from now to make way for the Marion Street Tavern, a new bar by Sam Roots, who owns the Providence Tavern in Edgewater. "I don't want to give too much away right now," Roots told Lori Midson, "but I can tell you that we're going to completely redo the space and make it a really cool old-style neighborhood saloon with a menu that's similar to Providence Tavern, and we'll also have some really good draft beers that will be affordable."

The reaction was swift...and loud.

Said Nate: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Cried Brit: "Nooooooooooooooooo!"

Coco put their feelings into words:

Well, this sounds like another horrible idea by a person who knows nothing about the neighborhood they just bought into. Sad but not surprised to see Gabor's go. It's only a matter of time before all of Denver's beautiful urban history is white-washed by subrubanite idealists hoping to fix what isn't broken and kill all culture in the process.

What made Gabor's such a great Capitol Hill institution? And what are your best memories of the place? Post them below, or join the heated conversation about Gabor's already under way here.
