On Nov. 3, Denver will say goodbye to another beloved neighborhood spot. Barricuda’s is saying goodbye after 25 years.

The news was posted to the bar’s Facebook page on Friday morning:

Barricuda’s will be closing it’s doors on November 3rd. It’s been our pleasure to serve and be a part of the Capitol Hill community for 25 years. We will be having great specials during our last weekend, and a customer-employee appreciation party on our last night of business. Details will be posted soon.

We want to thank you for all of your support over the years, and please feel free to share your favorite memories with us on our page, or come in and share them with us in person. đź’™

The Capitol Hill mainstay, tucked unassumingly into a mini-strip mall at 11th Avenue and Ogden Street, had a reputation for cheap drinks, late-night food, friendly vibes and an unpretentious but effective hangover brunch.

As posted, the final night at Barricuda’s will be a send-off party. Pour one out (into your mouth).
