Happy hour hopefuls were met by a discouraging sign on the door of Agave Tequila Lounge lounge this week. The inauspicious sheet of paper read, "Due to poor economic conditions, we are no longer open for business. We thank you for your past patronage."
In fall 2007, Music Row veterans Ken Levitan, Ross Schilling and Chris Ferran, along with Scott Sherrill and Gulch developers Steve Armistead and Bill Barkley, transformed the former Pie Wagon building into the sultry South-of-the-border flavored establishment serving an array of tequilas, margaritas and Mexican-inspired cuisine. Agave eliminated lunch service last year and remained a 21-and-up establishment.
