The Grill and Red Room Set to Close Tuesday Night

Posted By on Sun, Nov 20, 2011 at 10:00 PM

A down note tonight as the Grill, which was downtown next to Wig-o-rama before downtown became cool again, announced on their Facebook page that they plan to shut down on Tuesday at midnight. Rory O'Rear of the adjacent Red Room, which also looks to be closing in the process, posted a note regarding the closing on their Facebook page:

I'm posting this now, because I know you'll hear about it from somebody else soon enough. My official statement is this: you, our faithful clientele, have made our bar into a social institution. You placed your faith in us and your money, and you made us into a thriving bar. But we are part of the Grill, and the Grill is not a thriving business for a number of reasons beyond anybody's control. We are still working the details out, but the bottom line is that we are going out of business. As in, we won't be open by this time next week. We may not even be open past Thanksgiving. If you want to come in and pay your respects, have one last cocktail or beer (or ten; who's counting?), thank your favorite bar tender, or what have you, now is the time to do it. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all the years of support, fantastic shows, and for making us feel like we're at the center of something real, pivotal, and grassroots. This is a sad day for Tucson, but lets try and go out with grace and style, and remember what this place meant to us, whatever that might have been for each of us.
