Leopold Bros. to Close in June

As posted on the blog Ann Arbor Is Overrated:
Leopold Bros., the frequent venue for Green Drinks, will be closing and moving its operations to Denver this summer.
Our lease expires in the summer, and shockingly (note heavy sarcasm), our landlords asked for an obscene amount per month in rent, so we’re done. This move has zero to do with the economy, or sales levels, as we are coming off of our strongest year of sales at the pub since we’ve been open. We moved here in 1998, and since that time our rent has tripled, and our new landlords want even more... because, of course, that’s what the market will bear.

According to Todd, the distilling operations will be moving in the spring, and the bar itself will close a few months later.
