Huge bummer! Belltown's swanky, hipster bar/gallery The McLeod Residence is shutting down on Oct. 31 due to failure to comply with fire codes. "We didn't know that much about owning a business and didn't look into it before we signed our lease. Somebody with experience would have had an architect look at the place." say the owners referring to the building not being up to code for the kind of business they have.
Shucks! It's sad to see them go as McLeod has proven to be a great addition to the Belltown nightlife scene. There is still hope yet however, word is they're looking for a new location. Maybe they should rent the space where the old Apartment bistro used to be??
