Campbell says the previous owner, who ran the spot for nearly three years, was a bit shady and basically disappeared; he promises that he and Lane will run a clean place and keep out the riff-raff.
Since taking over the property last month, they've spruced the place up with a new coat of paint, installed new beer taps, and brought in new bar stools and flatscreen TVs.
And they've made another change: They're offering food. Although Campbell says the kitchen is the size of a closet, the Recovery Room will serve hot dogs, Italian sausage and other items from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. They'll also have happy hours with a dollar off most drinks from 2 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, as well nightly specials that run from 9 p.m. to close.
The recovered Recovery Room will open its doors at 5 p.m. on May 8, and stay open from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. over the weekend. On Monday, it will introduce its regular hours: 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day. The new phone number: 303-248-7207.
