State College’s Bar Bleu Seemingly Closed

Another downtown staple has seemingly bit the dust.

Bar Bleu, located at 114 S. Garner Street, appears to be closed for good, evidenced by locked doors and an empty interior. A note on its Google page suggests the bar is permanently closed, and its phone line forwards calls to an automated answering machine.

Additionally, a banner in Bar Bleu’s window says the property is available for lease from Continental Real Estate Management.

For now, it’s unclear why Bar Bleu closed this fall. Its parent company, Dante’s Restaurants and Nightlife, didn’t respond to an initial request for comment submitted Saturday.

The Deli & Z Bar, also owned by Dante’s, appears to be closed, too. Its property at 113 Hiester Street has been up for lease since this summer, according to The restaurant is no longer listed on Dante’s website.

We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
