The Continental to Close

Downtown is about to lose some of its swank.
The Continental, the perpetual underdog of Blue Dome restaurateur Elliot Nelson’s restaurant and bar portfolio, will soon close to make way for a McNellie’s expansion project.
The rumor was confirmed by Jim O’Connor, business manager for Nelson’s management group, as well as by a McNellie’s hostess. O’Connor had provided no further comment by press time.
The Continental, the jazz-influenced bar serving up drinks, appetizers and live entertainment since 2005, is located next door to McNellie’s at 421 E. First St. Hours are 4 p.m.-2 a.m. Tuesday-Friday and 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday. ?
