Smith's Olde Bar will remain open in Atlanta's Morningside neighborhood at least through the end of the year according to Dan Nolen, the operator of the longtime night spot.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Nolen says he has worked out a deal with his landlord for an extension of the lease. In April, the club got an eviction notice, as the property that houses Smith’s and other businesses is now for sale.
Smith's has been hosting live music at the Piedmont Avenue location for more than 20 years. Nolen says he hopes to work out a long-term lease with the new owner.
