Michele’s Cocktail Lounge operated at the location until just recently. A social media post from the establishment on October 9th acknowledges the change in ownership: “Well if you don’t know …the bar has been sold. The name will be changed. It was a great time, but all things must come to an end..It was a great 25 plus years. Not sure what’s going to happen.”

Parmar could not be reached for comment at the time of publication, so the opening or reopening timeline for the bar remains unclear. Commentors and well-wishers on the Michele’s post hope the new owners will keep Michele’s staff on during the transition.

According to the liquor license application, the bar space is 3,865 square-feet.
