Junkyard Bar Relief Closed twice due to JBE

Due to the recent actions of Governor John Bell Edwards our bar has been shut down once again! We feel it is unfair to close just one specific business when we have the capability to host a safe place to relax and have a good time. We feel like we provide a place where you can let go, drink and enjoy yourself safely. Instead we are promoting taking alcohol in your vehicles and are being revoked the right to have musical gatherings even outside just because we don’t serve food. If we are relieved of this and it doesn’t cause a decline for us we will donate all proceeds to a veteran charity. We love all of our customers and supporters and miss you dearly already.  Save our stages! Save our bartenders! Save our bars! Save our businesses and livelihood ! Support local! We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and just want to see Downtown Monroe succeed and become a destination. We have been shut down again. Which means how do we keep up when we can’t have our lovely customers come see us? No monies for bills. It doesn’t have to be this way. We can practice social distancing and safe, clean service just as well as restaurants and other businesses! We have masks available and hand sanitizer in many places throughout the bar. If you could take a dollar to support one local business to help keep the doors open, we would be ever so grateful. We love you guys! With all the love, Junkyard bar.
