Black Diamond Closed

Posted By on Wed, Jan 4, 2012 at 3:33 PM

The Black Diamond, the laidback Beale Street bar famous for catering to employees of other bars along the entertainment strip, closed for business on New Year's Day.

The scuttlebutt, according to Paul Ryburn's Journal, is that Tater Red's is planning to expand into the Black Diamond space. A spokesperson for the Beale Street Merchants Association referred questions about Black Diamond's closure to Tater Red's gift shop owner Leo Allred. However, Allred told the Flyer that he wasn't ready to talk about his plans.
