Casbah the business was sold to Jim ????(I beleive) he's the guy that owns The Funky Monkey(so you can figure out what kinda crowd) and The Lounge,possibly other bars,but I'm not sure.La lunas still owns the building.

The reasons for the change of hands varies with each person I,ve talked to,but more less it wasn't being run right is about the only common thing between the people I talked to.

All I know is the last night I was there was a Fat Cats night and the guy behind the bar told me that "Our kind wouldn't be here very long",sure enough a couple people were asked to leave,in turn a few of us left never to return.

What the place is like now I can only guess,but I am sure its not for me.

Too bad had alot of great times there.

As for the comfort zone,I never cared for the venue but I did see a hell of alot great shows there and it is always a downer when a venue that provides great music regulary, closes.
