Sidebar Restaurant Closing Next Week

Sidebar will be closing its doors for good next week according to a post at its Facebook page.

The restaurant and bar on Greenup Street in the Roebling Point entertainment district posted, "We hate to be the bearers of bad news... But, Sidebar will be closing its doors June 22nd. With that said, you better come in to get your fill of our delicious burgers; you know you're going to miss them... and us!"

In a 2011 interview with The River City News, owner Bill Rowland said that he lives in Adams County, Ohio and commutes 65 miles each way, but said that when he was looking for a bar to buy he searched in Downtown Cincinnati and in Milford but fell in love with Covington and the building that has housed Sidebar for the past few years. Much of the produce he uses at the restaurant comes from his Adams County property.

Sidebar was celebrated for its burgers which ranked by the Cincinnati Enquirer as among the best in the region.

No reason for the close was made immediately available.
