Paper Plane closing its doors
A celebrated Decatur bar with a speakeasy vibe is closing its doors for good. From the Paper Plane Facebook page …
Aloha, Gang. We have an announcement to make over this airplane intercom thing. As many of you know, Paper Plane has stopped food service this month. And at the end of August, after two-and-a-half years, we will stop all service. Paper Plane is taking its last flight, soaring off into the Decatur sunset. Which is to say, you should come by and enjoy our award-winning drinks and lovely staff while you can. You only have until the end of the month! Many of you have asked what’s going to replace Paper Plane. We’re happy to report that Wal-Mart will set up a small store in that space. Perfect for the Decatur-ite looking for guns, bullets, lawn chairs, half-off Christmas gear—really, anything. Of course, we are kidding. Put down your protest signs. We’ve got something even more (coco)nuts than that. See you soon, and until then, Mahalo, Y’all!
The news is a bit of a shock, given Paper Plane’s reputation as a destination point in downtown Decatur.
Back in March, it was revealed that award-winning bartender Paul Calvert was parting ways with the establishment.
