Helena bar loses battle to continue using outdoor patio

A Helena bar lost its battle to continue using an outdoor pation. The Helena City Commission voted unanimously Monday to revoke the Sapphire Bar’s right to use a City Parks right-of-way for outdoor seating, which it was granted in 2015. The decision was prompted in part due to concerns from downtown residents, who complained about noise and trash left behind, according to the city attorney.
