Squeaky Bean Owner Johnny Ballen Misses City Spirit

The hangout closed its doors in 1997, but a City Spirit reunion was held in 2012 for those who wanted to share some of its memories.

When Squeaky Bean owner Johnny Ballen was asked what Denver restaurant he'll forever miss, he talked about City Spirit and Muddy's. Ballen reminsices on good times and good coffee.

I miss City Spirit on Blake Street. It was a big watering hole for myself and many of my friends back in the day.  Full of fond memories of great times, good music and great vibes with design & art from Susan Wick.

I also miss Muddy's that was on the corner of 15th & Boulder.  Great late night meeting spot for coffee and treats.
