Even Usher gets hit by the economy

Even Usher gets hit by the economy. Usher closes down his bar The Grape in Atlanta because of the economy. The R&B singer had great expectations for his Atlanta bar The Grape back in 2006 and even wanted to go global with it.

Usher opened the bar back in 2006 in his hometown Atlanta, but the wine house failed to re-open after New Year’s. Apparently the parent company is going out of business.
