The Red Garter was a 3.2 beer bar prior to being closed and condemned in 1966 due to water damage. This was one of a few local bars and has since then been renovated and is once again open as a local bar. The building along with having been a bar also housed a bowling alley on the second floor, and was the first of many buildings purchased in the development of Fort Collins' Old Town Square.
