— The Spring Hope bar known as the Hard Luck Saloon burned down Sunday night. The building is a total loss, Spring Hope Fire Chief Travis Green said.  

The location, at 803 E. Nash St., was formerly the Bachelors Tavern.

When firefighters arrived at about 11 p.m., flames were shooting from the building, Green said.

No one was inside at the time, and no one was injured in the fire.

    It had switched to Hard Luck a month or so back, that didn't work out for whatever reason and then it switched back to Batchelor's. It will always be Batchelor's to me. Lost of great memories in that old building.

    I always thought it was Bachelors Tavern. At least that is what the sign says each time I drove by it twice a day everyday for years including this morning when I saw it smoldering.
