Owner Charles Armstrong explained that ‘changing times’ and ‘the concept has gone,’ in the social media alert that was posted on Thursday afternoon.

The Montrose Mining Company opened in 1978 and Armstrong acquired the venue in 1986. Nearly 30 years ago. Armstrong took the popular bar, that once housed a ‘late night disco diner’ the ‘Tattooed Lady,’ and made it a destination for queers looking for great drink prices, larger patios, and a place to see dancers on boxes.

A new era is about to begin,” Armstrong expressed. No other details have been released except that the new concept will ‘absolutely be GLBTQ.’  Details expected within the next 18 months.
