Even by bar standards, the Office Bar & Lounge in the former Alibi Room downtown has had a troubled and short history.

In late September, right around the time The Eagle reported a couple of people were opening the Office at 919 E. Douglas, they got out of the business.

Then next-door neighbor Marc Humsi, a co-owner of District Taqueria, decided to reopen the Old Town business.

It’s now closed again.

Humsi previously said he’d always wanted to own a bar. He didn’t returns calls to explain why he closed this one.

The landlord says Humsi wants to focus on his restaurant.

The bar is now for sale or lease through J.P. Weigand & Sons.
