Bogart's in the Fan closing Dec. 31

Posted By on Tue, Dec 17, 2013 at 4:00 AM

It doesn’t come as a complete surprise that long-running Bogart’s in the Fan will close at the end of the month. Owner Jim Bacas listed the restaurant for sale in June and plans to retire.

Bogart’s was one of the city’s major live music venues for decades, but lost momentum when it moved from its Lombardy St. location (now Balliceaux) to its current address 1903 W. Cary St. It’s possible that another iteration of the business will develop, a manager says, but details are unconfirmed. Its last day is New Year's Eve.
