Rumors Bar and Grill will close down August 18. The bar posted the announcement on Facebook.
“Over the last 6.5 years we have had the pleasure of serving our community. We would like to thank all of our loyal customers for making us their destination,” the Facebook post reads. “The surrounding businesses for welcoming us. And most of all our incredible staff! Without your outstanding service, none of this could had been possible. The lasting memories we have made will be with us always.”
The announcement also included a final drink special: half priced drinks from open to close everyday.
Goodbye messages poured into Facebook.
“Oh my first bar I went to while moving here 8 months ago. The atmosphere, the people and staff made me feel home and loved. I’m gonna miss you all,” Gabe Galan wrote. While Rebecca Kathleen added: “I’m shocked and heartbroken. We were just there and I never would have saw this coming. Best wishes to everyone there and on their new journeys. This was the best bar I’ve been to ever and so many memories have been made. Thank you for all the endless laughs and smiles and wonderful conversations.”
One commenter had a theory on why the bar might be closing.
“The competition level on the drive is too intense for owners who don’t have deep pockets to survive. As long as the bars are forced to basically give away their drinks to get people in the bar, this is going to happen eventually to many of them,” Greg Phelps said. “Believe me. I’ve been in their shoes!”
