While big-name restaurant openings grabbed most of the attention in September, a number of bars and eateries closed their doors, including a couple of Irish taverns, a neighborhood coffeehouse, and a corner bar on University Boulevard that had stood watch for forty years. There was even one restaurant, the Good Son, that closed during the first week of the month, reopened under new ownership as the Goods, and promptly closed again after a kitchen fire. The Goods is expected to reopen early next week once water-damaged floors are replaced.
Here are seven of the closings in metro Denver over the last month, along with links to the stories we wrote.
