Last Thursday we got our walking papers. The landlord has decided to rent the space to someone else, giving our employees 5 days to find new jobs. If you know any bars that are hiring please send us a Facebook message. Tonight is your last chance to party at the Star Bar. Let's do it up right. See you tonight!

David Heany and Marty Nolan opened Star Bar opened in 1991 at 437 Moreland Ave. NE in a space previously occupied by a bank. Heany died in late 2018, according to local music publication Stomp and Stammer.

The bar has changed hands several times since Heany and Nolan sold it in the early 2000s. Kahle Davis bought the business in 2013.

In addition to serving as a showcase for live and regional acts, Star Bar also hosted regular comedy nights

The AJC has reached out to Star Bar ownership regarding details on the closure and potential plans for relocation and is reaching out to the landord on details.
