Historic Lake Arthur bar will reopen in October

LAKE ARTHUR, LA (KPLC) - The old historic L.A. Bar in Lake Arthur will soon reopen after being closed for years. The 100-year old building that first opened back in 1910 is being restored to its original condition.

New owners Shannon Guillory and Brandon Abshire said it is important to them to keep the memory alive by restoring the historic hot spot in Lake Arthur.

"We're not changing anything in here. we are trying to keep everything as natural as it was," said Shannon Guillory.

"I feel good, and from what I hear people are so excited to see this old establishment going back into business. When it shutdown they hated to see it go down," said Sonny Abshire.

The owners are shooting for an opening date of October 1, 2010.
