The Recovery Room, a longtime hole-in-the-wall bar at 819 Colorado Boulevard serving the east Congress Park neighborhood as well as the good doctors, nurses and health-care professionals from nearby hospitals and medical centers, has flatlined.

The door is boarded up and a posted Colorado Department of Revenue sign reads: "Warning. This property has been seized for nonpayment of taxes, and is now in the possession of the state of Colorado."

An additional notice of public sale declares that the bar's owner, CMJ Enterprises, owes the state $8,398.18 in back taxes.

The Recovery Room was a Denver original. Our condolences.
