It's so hard to see local businesses close under any circumstances, but especially as a result of the pandemic. Here are two more businesses in the Quad Cities who recently announced they're closing for good.

Bleyart's Tap, 2218 E. 11th St. Davenport announced via Facebook, they'll be closing in March/April of 2021.

After 76 years, Bleyarts has become more than just a bar and our patrons have become more than just friends. We will miss you.
We will remain open for the next 6-8 weeks, so join us to recall the good times, share in laughter and raise a cold one to a legacy.
Bleyart's has been in the Quad Cities since 1944 probably most famously when it was off of Brady Street at 215 E. 29th St. a central Davenport neighborhood bar. It closed there and moved to the Village back in 2007. Their Facebook page says they'll close for good in 6-8 weeks.
Another favorite place of mine announced they'll be closed permanently.
Element Tea and Wine Lounge, 5345 Belle Court, Davenport will not reopen after closing for the pandemic. They're located off 53rd St., Davenport near DuTrac Credit Union.

Both of these closings sting my soul. You can't be a Quad Citian unless you've been to Bleyart's for a beer. Element was a new place I discovered and often met friends there for dessert, apps and a glass of wine. I'll miss both places.

Element will be selling their beautifully decorated furniture and accent pieces. You can contact them by phone for more details.
