Here we go again. Another restaurant/bar bites the dust downtown.
The Cincinnati Nation informed us late yesterday afternoon that Sully’s, the bar and pub on 7th Street downtown, has closed their doors. Here in Cincinnati, this chain operation has been around since 2007. Click here to read more details about the closing.
Apparently a bartender showed up for work and found the doors closed. I guess that’s a bit better than when Redfish closed down in the same location in 2006. With that closing, the entire staff showed up—then was told to go home.
Those who read me on a regular basis know I’ve never been a fan of Sully’s. In CityBeat’s Living Out Loud column some time back, I once wrote about how most of the employees there seemed unhappy. In January, on this blog, I wrote about walking in during happy hour and despite the fact that the place was fully staffed, it took forever to get a drink.
At this point, I don’t know what will work downtown or which bar or restaurant will close next. As far as something new downtown, I still think a Waffle House would work. Hell—give it a damn liquid license.
