Beloved Fort Collins Craft Bar to Close on Christmas Eve
For nearly two years, Extra Arts & Drafts brought the joys of crafting and drinking to Old Town Fort Collins. Unfortunately, that's about to change.
According to the Coloradoan, Northern Colorado locals Jeff and Amy White opened the "arts and crafts" bar in February of 2021, allowing Choice City residents to create a variety of projects — including string art, bottle openers, resin jewelry, and more — over drinks.
"We really wanted something that could appeal to anybody, where someone could come in and make whatever they wanted," Amy told the publication in March of that year.
Sadly, Extra Arts & Drafts won't be at 115 E Mountain Avenue much longer. In a Facebook post, the company announced that it would be closing after Christmas Eve.
"Extra Arts & Drafts will be closing its doors permanently at the end of the month," read the post. "THANK YOU to all of you who visited our little maker bar, who brought your friends and made something cool!"
Thankfully, the Whites will still offer crafting fun at their Studio Vino stored in Loveland at 6055 Sky Pond Drive. In a Facebook comment, the bar revealed that they'll move some of the crafts from Extra Arts & Drafts to that location.
The company will also honor unused gift cards at Studio Vino after December 24.
