Is This the First Casualty of the Downtown Streetcar Construction?

Posted By on Mon, Jun 4, 2012 at 2:00 PM

Oxygen bar and tea house Breathe, Drink and Design at 416 E. Seventh Street has closed, saying the loss of business due to the modern-street-car project and the summer slow-down was too much to bear. From the place's Facebook account:

Hey everyone. Just wanted to thank everyone for your patronage and support throughout the last year. Unfortunately, we closed our doors at the end of this past month. It just got a little tough to keep the business going through all of the construction on 4th Ave. and we figured that it would be especially tough during the Summer with all the students out of town. These things happen, though.

But, hey... you never know when we might just get the crazy notion to do this again! So, what we want to say is "Thank you, and goodbye for now!"

Have a wonderful day, friends!

To be fair, one cannot overtly blame the construction downtown for this closure being that the success rate of a business model dealing chiefly in tea and oxygen has yet to be proven. That said, the construction surely did nothing to help the business out, and here's hoping we don't see more shuttered businesses before the construction dust clears.
