DENVER — A Denver restaurant and bar, nestled along the South Platte River and Commons Park, is permanently closing its doors.

Carbon Cafe & Bar announced it closed its business on May 8 after nine years of operation.

"It is with our deepest regret that we must inform you that as of Monday, May 8, our business will be closing its doors permanently," Carbon Cafe & Bar posted on its website. "It has been truly lovely to serve you all over the past nine years."

"Thank you so much for your gracious and continued support."

Located at 1553 Platte St. in Denver's lower downtown area, Carbon Cafe & Bar described itself as an "all-day eatery, edgy watering hole, brightly-colored bakery and one-stop shop for shooters, swag, sweets and more."

Carbon Cafe & Bar joins a growing list of Colorado restaurants closing in recent weeks.
