ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two Albany bars are closing their doors. Staff was packing up at One Trick Pony and Crow Bar Monday afternoon.

The owner, John Luttrell,  could not say exactly why he closed the bars down. All we know right now is business was not great partially due to the economy.

Luttrell has owned Crow Bar for more than seven years and One Trick Pony for four years.

More than 50 employees are without a job. Luttrell did not want to speak on camera. His son says he has no plans of opening a new bar in Albany.

Crow Bar was known for bringing some well-known acts to town including: Luke Bryan, Edwin McCain, Marcy Playground, Nappy Roots, Afroman, Shane Owen, and 12 Stones.
