But on Tuesday night, tragedy struck. The longtime owners posted this message yesterday on the Rocky Flats Lounge Facebook page.
To all our Rocky Flats friends...
The bar suffered a fire last night after close that caused significant damage to the kitchen area and north end of the building We are doing everything we can to figure out a plan of action as to moving forward and will be updating you periodically. With a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck, we hope to continue bringing you the Rocky Flats experience for years to come. We thank you for all of your support and ask you to pass this info on to any friends, family or acquaintances that may want to follow/like/support us on and off of facebook during this time.
A huge thank you goes out to the Coal Creek Fire Dept and Jeffco Sheriff's Dept for their prompt and professional service when we needed them most...as well as allofyou who help keep the Flats fun and safe. It means a lot to us....
