The downtown bar at the corner of First and Howard is up for sale once more. With barely a year under its belt, Underground 15 bar and music venue has closed, letting patrons know with a sign on its front door (the business's Facebook page is also shut down).

“We're in the process of trying to sell it,” said co-owner and local musician Zach Wirchak in an email. “I like to call it ‘partners disagreement.’ It was best just to try and sell so we can all go our own ways. Frustrating for me, but such is life!”

A little bit out of the way from the downtown nightlife hotspots on Sprague and also North Division and East Main, Underground 15 still managed to draw people for various DJ and trivia nights. The space often hosted local bands that other music venues weren’t featuring. In a town of seemingly rotating music venues, this is yet another loss. 

The location was once home to the local favorite the Blue Spark, which closed in 2013 after 14 years in business. With the next door Ridpath Hotel's opening approaching, the business location may soon be a hot commodity.
