HOMER — You just can’t keep a good bar down.
Yeah, that was the story in 1976, when the Club Bar rose from the ashes after a fire destroyed it. That was the story in 2007, when after three years Alice’s Champagne Palace, its name since 1980, once again reopened. That was the story in 2009, when after a summer hiatus, it opened for the fall.
And now, that’s the story once more, as Dr. Todd Boling and his wife Beth and partner Matthew North have announced they have purchased Alice’s Champagne Palace from English Bay Corp., which has owned the bar since 2004.
