Mel's...A Santa Barbara libation Institution

Mel's...A libation institution
Originally uploaded by santa barbarian.

is calling "last call."

Mel’s Lounge, a State Street institution since 1963, is closing on August 24. - SB Independent

900 square feet with a rent that was raised to $10,000 a month. Ah, that's alot of margaritas on the rocks to serve up. $10,000 a month for 900 square feet. The only thing that can afford to go in there is another stupid chain store.

Another bit of Santa Barbara has been destroyed for the "average, working folk."
