POTSDAM –La Casbah, 6 Elm St. has closed.

Landlord Bob Ramsay confirms that the bar and former Mideast restaurant is no longer operating in the former Masonic Temple that he and partner Matt Hafer bought and renovated.

In September, Alex Bennani of La Casbah said that since they got behind in payments for a development loan arranged by the village, the creditors had required clearance to sell off the restaurant’s equipment. They closed the restaurant at that point, but tried to keep the bar open.

Ramsey said the multi-story space in available for rent.
