It’s lights out for The Bunkhouse Saloon, the Downtown bar and concert venue that hosted acts such as Bob Mould and The Breeders. The bar announced on Facebook that is was shutting up shop.
The dive bar originally shuttered in July 2013 for a "60-day remodel" and the completely made-over 9,533-square-foot venue reopened last August. The Bunkhouse hosted outside concerts on its 8,654-square-foot plaza.
Corner Bar Management, which runs Park on Fremont and Commonwealth, assumed management and operations of The Bunkhouse Saloon in February. But fear not for live music downtown. Former parent company the Downtown Project also owns the directly neighboring, forthcoming outdoor music venue The Wheel House.
And, hey, bands. Hard Hat Lounge owner Charles Fox, formerly owned The Bunkhouse Saloon, says to reach out. "If any bands want to fill their schedule contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to put you on our schedule and take care of you just like we did when we owned the Bunkhouse Saloon."
