Les Bobards, a Plateau bar and salle de spectacle, has closed after a quarter of a century in business. Management left this message on Facebook over the weekend: "IMPORTANT NOTICE: Les Bobards closes its doors definitively today for breach of lease. We'd like to thank our loyal customers and all musicians, artists, DJs, technicians and employees who helped make Les Bobards a bar and cultural venue that so many people liked over the past 25 years."
The boulevard Saint-Laurent spot is not the only long-established bar in the area to have recently closed. Korova had its last call not too long ago, and Baldwin shuttered last month as well.
