UPDATED: Idle Hour is closed until further notice, per its Facebook page

UPDATE (Jan. 5): A new post on the bar's Facebook page says: "We've got an insurance claim in the works. Keep your fingers crossed. We'll know more in 24-48 hours. Thank you again for all the support."

Idle Hour, the chartreuse-serving low-key dive bar that stood out among the many bro bars in neighboring Federal Hill, is closed until further notice, according to a post on its Facebook page.

"Apologies to Idle friends and family, but the Idle Hour is closed until further notice. We will keep you posted as more information is available," the post, which went up yesterday, reads.

An earlier post announced the bar would be closed on New Year's Eve too, much to the surprise of some fans, who expressed their dislike.

Nobody was there to answer the bar phone when City Paper placed a call this afternoon. We'll update this post with more details as soon as we get them.
