The neon is long gone, the painted letters are fading, and there's no signs of life in the business downstairs. I'm not sure when the Olympic Bar closed. A quick search shows it was at least still open in 1990 when it was robbed by a knife-wielding man. I don't think I even noticed the place - or, more accurately - its worn sign - until 2005 or so when it caught my eye on the way to the Albany bus station down the street.
