Just curious on what the definitions is of a "gay bar"? The only reason why I ask is I have read articles in some cities where they are becoming rare.. The notion that the lifestyle is becoming more accepted in many cities thus they are welcome in most bars> The discussion made the case that a "gay bar" was a place where people that were living secret lives would go in there in order not to be seen and to meet people secretly.. Now that doesnt seem to be an issue as society is more open... I dont know if that is a correct assessment or not....

They are becoming more rare since there are a lot of other places for gay people to meet in this day and age, plus other bars are not as unsafe as they once were for LGBT people. For instance, at one time there were 8 or 9 gay bars in Columbia and now there are 3 "1/2", even though the city is much larger.

Yeah, where is the Capital Club moving to? A new building? Also, any word on what is going into their old space?

The owners of (the former) Garibaldis and Colas will be opening a restaurant there at some point. The space CC is moving to is next to the Backpacker on Wayne Street near Chipotle. I con't remember what was most recently in that space. I almost never go to the present Capital Club. If I go out it's usually to the Sheraton Rooftop, Art Bar or PT's 1109.

I think that was a computer repair shop and before that maybe a mattress store?

Talk about an image boost for downtown Columbia. The governor has called for removing the Confederate battle flag from the capitol grounds. The lives lost in Charleston are the most important aspect of the story, but there's no doubt the flag has been an albatross around Columbia's neck.
